    Goals / Remit

    We are a specialist health policy consultancy.
    We create innovative policy initiatives and powerful evidence–based communications for organisations across the health spectrum. We provide a unique, seamless approach to help resolve the most complex issues facing our health care systems.

    We do this through rigorous research and expert synthesis of evidence, inter-sectoral collaboration, and powerful communications that act as the starting point for meaningful changes in policy and practice.

    Main EU files targeted

    Currently no formal involvement, role, or interaction with any EU initiative, policy or legislative file, however this is possible in future (see below) and will be updated as and when any such involvement or interaction is confirmed in our work plans.

    We do work with several MEPs who have donated their time for free to support (and act as Members of) the Heart Failure Policy Network (HFPN). See

    HPP acts as Secretariat for the HF Policy Network, a multidisciplinary group of politicians from across Europe working with patients, health professionals and other stakeholders to lead significant policy changes that may improve the lives of people with heart failure (HF).

    Formal engagement with EU institutions in 2016/17 is in our mission statement, and is under discussion with members. The exact format and scope of any such plans will confirmed here in the Register as soon as plans are formalised.
