Our first event of 2022 will focus on medicine shortages and the ongoing impact of both Covid and Brexit on the transport and supply of medicines.   We’re delighted to be joined by Darren Scully, Medicine Shortages Lead with the HPRA, along with Leonie Clarke, General Manager with the IMVO. 

As Covid is still very much present in our community, we will hold this breakfast briefing online for the safety and comfort of our members and speakers.   The event will be recorded and will be available to those registered after the event, for those who cannot make the live event.
