Act now to provide another for the medical workforce in Scotland.

Creating even more experts in specialist medical education will ensure that Scotland’s medical academic institutions maintain their worldwide reputation and continue to attract high quality students and staff. We also have to address the shortage of medical academic personnel in Scotland and the additional danger that may follow the introduction of top up charges in England. Workforce preparing cannot be regarded in isolation, it should be regarded in the context of service delivery. To be able to gain political and open public acceptance of local support reconfiguration, it is essential that they are engaged along the way at an early stage. Professor Temple’s report recognises the requirement for provider redesign and the need for open public involvement in the shaping of secure, local health services which is to be welcomed.These services are a critical part of our customers’ workflow in our key target markets of translational medicine, oncology, and immunology. We believe that these markets represent a nearly $3 billion annual opportunity, that may place Affymetrix on a good path to sustained growth and profitability. We look forward to welcoming the eBioscience team to the Affymetrix family members.
