The UTA, with the help of The Whitehouse Consultancy, recently delivered a productive and enjoyable Parliamentary Briefing and Networking Reception, on the theme of: ‘Protecting Patient Choice Post-Brexit’. 

We welcomed Ministers, MPs, Peers, clinicians, industry leaders and patients to discuss key issues for the sector and to bring those who manufacture medical devices together with those who use them.

Guests heard from Health and Social Care Select Committee Member, Rosie Cooper MP, and former Minister of State for Health, The Rt. Hon. Philip Dunne MP, who described the UTA as ‘one of the most effective bodies at engaging with Parliamentarians’.

UTA and Whitehouse Consultancy Chairman, Chris Whitehouse, spoke on behalf of UTA members: Bullen, CliniMed, Clinisupplies, Coloplast, Great Bear Healthcare, Hollister, Hunter Urology, Jade, Manfred Sauer, Mediplus, Peak Medical, Salts and Wellspect, highlighting the close links between industry and patients via the UTA’s Urology User Group Coalition and how members have worked together to ensure quality and standards via the UTA’s Code of Conduct.

Following the UTA’s recent Your Prescription, Your Choice campaign, urology product users, industry leaders and clinical practitioners were given the opportunity to engage with Parliamentarians to ensure that patient choice continues to play a vital part in this personal area of healthcare.
