Binley's Publishes New Handbook of Patient Groups

December 2006 Binley’s is launching The Handbook of Patient Groups, a new publication containing detailed coverage of the UK’s major patient organisations.

Authored by PatientView, The Handbook of Patient Groups provides contact information for 301 patient groups listed within 23 disease areas and 51 subcategories. Each entry also details useful additional information including each group’s history, geographical remit, charity commission registration and company registration (with number and date), revenue and pharmaceutical company funding.

The Handbook of Patient Groups provides useful information for anybody who needs to contact these influential organisations. This includes GPs, pharmacies, patient groups, medical products companies and the pharmaceutical industry.

Jim Benham, Head of Publishing at Binley’s said: “As an established provider of health and care information, Binley’s is delighted to publish The Handbook of Patient Groups 2007. Whether you are a patient, a healthcare professional, or someone who works elsewhere within the private, public, or voluntary sectors, I trust that you will find this publication both useful and informative”.

Clive Nead, Editorial Director at PatientView said: “The patient movement has grown enormously over the past few decades – as has the scale of its influence on NHS policymaking. However, whole areas of the movement remain ill-understood by the public, and patient groups are sometimes criticised for their supposed opaqueness. The Handbook of Patient Groups improves the transparency of the patient movement to benefit not only the groups, doctors and patients, but everyone who works in healthcare”.

PatientView is a global research and publishing organisation that works closely with health and social campaigning groups worldwide.

Binley’s reference portfolio includes a range of printed public sector directories, online modules and maps which are used for correspondence, reference, market research and business planning purposes. Binley’s also provide a number of specialist datasets, data management services, market research and mailing services enabling clients to enjoy a distinct level of professional engagement with the NHS.
