This was an excellent event with many high-profile speakers in which topics of immense importance to the UK and India were discussed. Healthcare professionals from India and the UK attended and it provided great networking opportunities for them as well as a platform for the challenges and opportunities in investing in healthcare sector in India to be discussed. It was a vitally important topic. The sessions were well structured and it was very well organised


Dr Vishaal Virani

I would like to thank you for all the work you did for the summit.  It was an excellent afternoon, and went very smoothly and efficiently. This was a fantastic event to help us further our ambitions to collaborate with Indian healthcare partners. The speakers and panel sessions were very insightful, and I met some very interesting contacts to follow up with.
