Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Medilink East Midlands welcomes its newest Patron

Pure Drug Safety has been recognised for the contribution it makes to life sciences, by becoming the newest Patron of Medilink East Midlands (EM).

Medilink EM works with life science businesses, academic institutions and the NHS across the East Midlands, to help new and existing life science companies to develop and grow.

In addition to the business support programmes it helps to deliver, Medilink EM provides a range of valuable benefits for its members, including profile raising, special offers from Medilink EM Patrons, discounts on exhibition stands and event offers and discounts, including to the upcoming Medilink East Midlands Innovation Day on 4 July.

Knowing of and championing the work of Medilink EM as a key driver of life sciences within the East Midlands, Pure Drug Safety wanted to build on the growing relationship between itself and Medilink EM. Both organisations have worked together for a number of years and this led to an ongoing discussion between the two companies, which resulted in Pure Drug Safety becoming a Medilink EM Patron.

Medilink EM Patronage is offered to organisations because of their prominence within the East Midlands and their recognition of the importance of life sciences in the region. Patrons also appreciate the positive contribution that Medilink EM makes to the sector through its business support activities.
