The Healthcare User Group is coordinated via a steering committee made up of Allocate Software customers. The committee is impartial and is representative of the customer base: Acute, Primary Care, Mental Health, Ambulance and the Private Healthcare sector. The group meets annually at the National User Group Conference, whilst regional groups meet more frequently allowing users to create a network of local organisations. The User Group also has access to a web based message board for sharing of ideas and access to regular Master Classes delivered by Allocate Software’s Healthcare team.
The Annual National User Group Meeting is held at various locations in the UK and includes product updates, masterclasses, industry expert guest speakers and sharing of best practise
