VoloMed is already in the process of building a user base that values networking within a niche environment that is specific to the healthcare sector. The site is open to four core user groups: healthcare professionals & organisations, health-based charities and the business community.
Membership for healthcare professionals and organisations, both in the public and private sectors and health-based charities is free; the cost for business members is £50 per annum.
News will be collated from various accredited sources from across the healthcare sector. Additionally, health-based charities will be able to contribute to the news section and use VoloMed as a free platform to promote awareness of their activities and current fundraising campaigns.
Political debate on VoloMed, with participation from all the major parties will be welcomed; the Conservative Party's Green Paper for Health, their SME survey into the public sector procurement process and the Richard Review of Small Business are already available for review and comment on the site.
