New HCA training course led by Jon Spiers, Head of Public Affairs at Just:: Health Communications.
s healthcare evolves, an understanding of the health policy environment and of how policy is developed and implemented is becoming increasingly vital for communications practitioners. This half day course will cover the basics of public affairs and health, including the Health and Social Care Act’s ramifications for the NHS, the role of Government, Parliament, the civil services and the key NHS bodies, and case studies of major health policy successes. Attendees will gain insights into how health policy is developed, how best to influence and which regulations and laws govern lobbying.
This course is aimed at healthcare communicators without a policy background working at agencies or in-house. Attendees can be at any stage of their career.
