And with regular regional meetings, conferences and webinars organised by the IHM, Highland will extend involvement opportunities to the wide range of health technology companies it supports in the UK and internationally.

The strategic partnership between the organisations will run for an initial three years.

Roy Lilley, health policy analyst and commentator, director of the Institute of Healthcare Management and a founder of the Academy of Fabulous Stuff, said: "Good things, ideas, innovations and concepts are the backbone of the NHS. 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."

Jon Wilks, chief executive of the Institute of Healthcare Management, said: "This new partnership is an opportunity to accelerate the reach of our services that are ultimately there to serve the people managing and delivering services in NHS and social care. Highland Marketing has a strong reputation in healthcare, and I look forward to doing great things with its team."
