The coronavirus pandemic presented new challenges, which saw AWMSG adapt to a new way of working and take virtual meetings in their stride.
On 15 December 2020, the team presented an overview of AWMSG at the first in a series of virtual Open Day events. The event, which was opened by the AWMSG Chair, was attended by over 40 pharmaceutical industry professionals, who were given an opportunity to meet the team and find out more about the Open Day programme for 2021.
From Medicines Access and Horizon Scanning to Free of Charge Medicines, the event provided an insight into key pieces of work, including contacts and processes relevant to the pharmaceutical industry.
The event was received extremely well by the industry, with attendees gaining useful insights into AWMSG and establishing an open dialogue with members of the team.
The full Open Day programme 2021 will be released on Friday 12 February 2021 with topics for future events to include; Market Access in Wales, Early Engagement and Commercial Arrangements, the AWMSG Appraisal Process and the Medicines Optimisation Framework.
The programme and registration details will be available from the AWMSG Open Days webpage.
