Healthcare Business Network

Keele University's Business Bridge and Healthcare Business Network

Keele University is delighted to announce the launch of a new Healthcare Business Network, a regional forum for companies in all sectors looking to grow their business and make new contacts in the healthcare and medical supply chain.

The Healthcare Business Network was launched by Keele University in 2018, creating a regional forum for companies in all sectors looking to grow their business and make new contacts in the healthcare and medical supply chain.

Network meetings allow attendees to discuss topics, make connections and share ideas to help shape the Network going forward. 

If you have suggestions on aspects such as potential future topics, events, members, guest speakers, venues or hosts, please contact Kylie Salmon, Business Bridge Project Manager, on 01782 734467 or k.salmon@keele.ac.uk.
