Apologies for the delay in spreading this good news.
Thank you for your support and comments which has made the English Department of Health formally extend the funding of the HIA Gateway from the next 3 months to the next 12 months!
If you would like to see the letter from Dame Sally Davies, the Chief Medical Officer, dated 13th April, then please click here.
If you would like to see the holding letter sent by Rt Hon. Andrew Lansley, received 9th March, then please click here.
The final letter that was sent in January can be seen by clicking here.
I'm calling this a partial success as we still need to maintain the pressure to ensure that funding is carried forward to future years indefinitely but it is a very positive step given the massive changes being proposed by the current English/UK Government across public health and healthcare.
So please use the HIA Gateway at www.hiagateway.org.uk as much as possible.
If you do have any thoughts on ensuring the future of the HIA Gateway then get in touch with me or the wider International HIA email network by clicking or pasting the following link https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?A0=HIANET
Or you could get in touch with the English Department of Health yourself via the first post and contacts listed in it.
All my best,
