PIF Partner membership is a mutually beneficial relationship, which takes into account of an organisation’s specific needs, as well as providing them with a core set of benefits. Central to the partnership is the desire to share insight and knowledge to support PIF’s Vision . Funding from our Partner members allows us to maintain our much-valued independence.
Why should I become a PIF Partner?
By joining PIF, our Partner members demonstrate a public commitment to supporting high quality health information. Your organisation will gain insights and thought leadership into the health information sector, and raise your profile to a wide network of information professionals, in a range of sectors, across the UK.
PIF’s Executive Circle events also ensure our Partners connect with other key influencers and can take a lead in policy developments. Our Partners help us by providing extra funding and collaborating on our projects, events and publications.
