Company membership is crucial to the work of the PCF and has many benefits for the companies involved, who are also able to nominate a representative to attend the meetings of the Forum.
“We have found our membership of the PCF invaluable in keeping us informed of the clinical, academic and research developments in paediatric continence care.
As a medical device manufacturer, the PCF’s work in areas like commissioning and clinical standards helps us to better understand local issues and the needs of paediatric patients better.
The PCF’s campaigning activities continue to pool together the evidence we need to ensure that CCGs are held to account and children with continence conditions are not forgotten by the NHS”.
Gerald Chan, Head of Public Affairs and Communications, Coloplast
