MPD complying with UDI regulations and eProcurement strategy for medical device labelling

21 January 2016 4 Greenfield Crescent, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 3BE

Medilink West Midlands, in conjunction with GS1, is offering a discounted one day workshop exploring the UDI regulations for the healthcare supply chain, normally costing £399.

The Department of Health published the eProcurement strategy in May 2014. It set out a range of measures utilising GS1 standards to enable transparency and efficiency in NHS procurement to help support patient safety. This is an interactive session that gives you the opportunity to discuss the requirements and issues with your industry peers and afternoon workshops to focus on individual business requirements.

With the Department of Health eProcurement strategy and global regulations mandating the use of our standards, it is now critical that these are correctly adopted throughout the healthcare supply chain. This course will provide the foundations you need for implementation.
