NHS England and Doctors.net.uk deliver urgent Ebola advice to doctors
An innovative electronic alerts service has been used by the Medical Director of NHS England to deliver important information and advice about Ebola to doctors across the NHS in England.
The alert from Professor Sir Bruce Keogh, National Medical Director of NHS England, and Dr Bob Winter, National Clinical Director for Emergency Preparedness, gave advice on spotting symptoms and it reminded doctors of the care pathway for patients who may have contracted the virus.
Doctors.net.uk’s ClinAlert service, which was introduced earlier this year, provides rapid and secure dissemination of clinical information, such as public health alerts and new guidelines, to the majority of doctors in the UK. This Ebola ClinAlert was sent to over 90,000 doctors in key specialties in England. The alert also provides a link to further online resources at www.gov.uk/phe.
Professor Sir Bruce Keogh said: ‘So far over 10,000 cases of Ebola have been recorded and over 50% of patients have died, making this the worst Ebola epidemic in history. Currently there is no known cure. With extensive global travel, it is important to be mindful and vigilant of Ebola when patients present to NHS services.
‘We have important information to get over to doctors, and we have been able to do this very quickly and effectively through Doctors.net.uk.’
Dr Tim Ringrose, CEO of Doctors.net.uk, said: ‘Doctors often feel overwhelmed with sometimes conflicting information from multiple sources. Having this critical piece of information sent to them directly by the Medical Director of the NHS ensures that the message is delivered and that doctors are assured of the support of the Medical Director during these times of immense pressure on NHS services’
Synergy Vision’s Ffyona Dawber wins Gold and Silver at the 2014 Stevie Awards for Women in Business
Ffyona Dawber has scooped two prestigious Stevie® Awards at the 11th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business held in New York, beating 10 others on the night to receive Gold in the category of “Female Entrepreneur of the Year”, and Silver in the “Woman of The Year” category. Ffyona is the managing director of medical communications agency Synergy Vision, which she founded in 2007 and has grown from 25 projects to 350 in just seven years.
The awards were presented at an exciting gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Friday, November 14, which was broadcast live across the U.S.A. and simulcast around the world. The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s top honours for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organizations they run. All individuals and organizations worldwide are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. The 2014 awards received entries from 22 nations and territories. More than 1,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes were submitted for consideration this year in more than 90 categories. The complete list of Stevie Award Winners is available at www.StevieAwards.com/Women.
These impressive awards reflect Ffyona’s continued success, and that of Synergy Vision. Ffyona, a former clinical specialist with significant experience in the pharmaceutical industry, recognised a gap in the market for a specialist medical communications agency that truly understands the requirements of pharmaceutical companies. Synergy Vision goes the extra mile to deliver the difference to its clients by offering a unique perspective – a synergy of pharma and agency experience, solid communications know-how, passion for science, and events management flair. Synergy Vision’s strong relationship with their clients is based on trust, and many clients consider Synergy Vision an extension of their own brand teams.
To receive not only one, but two Stevie® Awards is a fitting testament to Ffyona’s continued commitment and dedication to the company’s core values. Of her win, Ffyona says: “since I set up Synergy Vision, the company and client base has grown but the vision of delivering high quality medical communications has remained the same. It is wonderful to be recognised for all the hard work, thank you.” Congratulations to a most deserving winner!

pharmaphorum and The PM Society join forces to deliver a big breakfast.
Working in collaboration with pharmaphorum, the PM Society is now offering its highly successful Digital Breakfast monthly webinar series as a platform for companies and organisations to provide their own thought leadership presentations.
Established in 2012, these informative, hour-long webinars regularly attract up to 180 registrants and this is set to rise strongly as the PM Society is now collaborating with pharmaphorum to market and facilitate the platform for those wishing to reach pharma and healthcare decision makers in the UK and internationally.
In the past, Carwyn Jones, co-chair of the Society, has moderated discussions on key industry topics ranging from the latest trends in digital, to debates among GPs, nurses and pharmacists, to the implications of health regulations. High calibre speakers have included the ABPI’s Stephen Whitehead and experts from pharma and the NHS. See previous recordings here.
Now, the wider industry has the opportunity to use this valuable space to present on new topics, backed by the experienced and well-connected PM Society and pharmaphorum teams.
Speaking about the collaboration with pharmaphorum, Carwyn Jones said: “We are pleased with the interest that the Digital Breakfasts have created. Live interactive webinars are a great way of engaging and audience allowing them to ask questions and respond to polls. We look forward to collaborating with pharmaphorum moving forward to drive their continued success.”
The PM Society was established over 30 years ago to promote marketing excellence in the healthcare and life sciences industries.
