The work we do through the Institute of Healthcare Management and the Academy of Fabulous Stuff is all about sharing this good stuff and supporting individuals to help make services better and more efficient.

"I look forward to our new partnership with Highland Marketing, a communications agency which has a parallel vision for sharing good stories in healthcare."

Highland Marketing has a strong reputation in healthcare, and I look forward to doing great things with its team."
