Healthcare Deep Dive

Friday 26th November, 10am GMT

Thank you for your interest in the Locate Guernsey Winter Virtual Event Series 2021.

Join Locate Guernsey for its Healthcare Deep Dive on Friday 26th November, the final event in our Winter Series. Locate Guernsey recognises that healthcare is often an area of particular interest for prospective relocators, so has produced a Deep Dive to explore the local healthcare system in greater detail. Join Jo Stoddart, Director of Locate Guernsey, as she speaks with three of the Island’s healthcare professionals who endeavour to answer some of the important healthcare questions that may be on the minds of prospective relocators.

Thank you to our Healthcare Deep Dive Partner, Island Health.

The full Winter Series will be available to watch on demand after the live events. Further information about the event speakers, the event partner, and the other events in the Winter Series, can be found below.
