The Merits of Free CV appraisals

29 Sep 10

Over the last few years, many companies have started to offer CV appraisals to the extent that the market is now flooded with offers of free advice. I remember the days when we and one or two other CV writing companies offered such a service and it became a very effective way of building relationships with customers and strutting our expertise on all things CV related.

Should a CV include a Personal Profile – the current view!

Freelancers & Contractors - how to write a CV that isn’t 6 pages long!

29 Sep 10

In my capacity as a Career Consultant, I have worked closely with freelancers & contractors for many years and two challenges keep rearing their ugly head: Firstly, how does a freelancer write a CV that isn’t six pages long; and secondly, what happens if you want to apply for a role that draws upon skills gained in a contract that isn’t the most recent piece of work that you have done.

UK Science Funding: Doing More With Less

24 Sep 10

In a climate of fiscal hardship, everybody has a special case to plead. Indeed, when the funding scalpel is out, every department and almost every recipient of public sector funds has a special tale to tell. The truth is, science funding really is that important.

Stem Cell Research: The Politics of Science

Pharma to Make the Private Public

06 Sep 10

Last week, leaders from companies like AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and Roche met in Vienna in a closed meeting to discuss the future of the pharma industry. Fears of layoffs at pharmaceutical companies are once again dominating the news, but could there be a less painful way to save money?

Quick Look: Dementia

02 Sep 10

Even in the good years, mental health budgets were seldom in line with what experts expected or deemed necessary. Thus, in times of budget deficits and scathing public expenditure cuts, the worry becomes even greater. For those that care most about the health service then, the Coalition government's decision to ring fence healthcare spending has been largely applauded.

While long prohibited under UK ABPI regulations, if you’ve worked in the world of big pharma in the U.S., you’ll have seen it all a hundred times. A drugs company sponsors a medical conference, they pay for the meals and flights of the delegates and they hand them all a goodie bag as they leave.

NHS Reform

30 Jul 10

We have a fundamental problem with our health service. It's bloated, it's weighed down in bureaucracy and it's terribly inefficient. That's if you believe the diagnosis of our health service by the new Health Secretary, Andrew Lansley.

Worst Possible Interview Mistakes

23 Jul 10

If the nation’s recruiters received a pound for every time they’d interviewed a candidate that looked good on paper but disappointed in practice, there’d currently be an awful lot of recruiters in the process of relocating to the Caribbean.

The Research Revolution

19 Jul 10

During a time of major economic downturn, there are few industries that can be said to be truly ‘recession proof’. Yet for years now, big pharma has largely been seen as precisely that. After all, no matter dire the markets, and no matter how low consumer confidence plummets, there is always a demand for healthcare.

NHS Targets

25 Jun 10

In areas such as competition policy and choice in the NHS, there could be said to be much correlation between the approaches of both governments past and present. Yet in other key areas of policy, there are unquestionably examples of ideological, or at least philosophical, differences in outlook. Or at least in theory.

Swine Flu Hoax

18 Jun 10

A selective memory is a wonderful thing. That is, if you're a conspiracy theorist or an opportunistic critic of any kind. Yet, for those of us with memories of a more consistent mold, a lot of the current and decidedly harsh criticism directed against the World Health Organization’s handling of the just passed H1N1 'Swine Flu' outbreak must be questioned in kind.

Competition in the Health Service

17 Jun 10

As the new Conservative-led coalition finally begins to settle down to the task ahead, questions of policy detail are increasingly replacing the brouhaha of election-time buccaneering and healthcare policy and the NHS are no exceptions to the rule – particularly in the case of competition policy.

With every challenge comes a new opportunity. Indeed, if we are to believe the results of a recent international workforce survey by Kelly Services, while the global economic recession has produced troubles a plenty, it has also evoked a new found sense of entrepreneurialism as workers look to adjust to changing employment models and to respond to new challenges in a very human way.

They voted against their patent claims and a storm is brewing in the biotech community. The Court ruled that the patents should have never been granted because genes are a law of nature. With the majority of industry outsiders in agreement, how will the pharmaceutical world react?

Homeopathy and the NHS

13 Apr 10

Since the moment of the NHS’s very inception in 1948, complementary medicine has formed an accepted and often-used element of the country’s national health service. Thousands of Brits swear blind by the efficacy of homeopathic treatments and rates of patient satisfaction are often far higher at the country’s homeopathic hospitals than they are on standard NHS wards. Yet while many patients claim a strong appreciation of the benefits of homeopathy, the science tells another story.

Patient Advice in the Digital Age

07 Apr 10

We often use them to make decisions about what products we buy and which we keep buying…except for pharma’. Yet more than that, he makes a coherent and convincing argument for how these kinds of services could ultimately end up benefiting the pharma industry itself. Indeed while information from a single person on the internet might be far too subjective to be of use, the sophistication of the crowd is arguably much greater.
