A healthcare team visiting Kerala has shown great interest in forging partnerships and has extended their invitation to colleges, universities, corporates in the State to explore the UK for exchange of research, training, technology and education.
In this regard, MP, UK Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Public Health, Anna Soubry led the delegation and met up with Chief Minister Oommen Chandy.
She said, "I am delighted to be in Kerala which is renowned worldwide for its high health and human development indices. I am very pleased to have met Chief Minister who shares my enthusiasm for strengthening the existing academic and research partnerships we have in Kerala."
The Chief Minister expressed delight at the prospect and is looking forward to the joint effort of both nations to improve quality in healthcare.
The British delegation spent good time at the Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences & Technology (SCTIMST) in Thiruvananthapuram to take the academic and scientific research collaboration between SCTIMST and the UK institutions forward.
This is indeed a positive step in improving healthcare technology management in India.
