James Kent worked for many years within the acute sector of the NHS, most recently as Clinical Lead Pharmacist and later Chief Pharmacist at Southend Hospital NHS Trust. From 2011-2017 he was also seconded to an organisation called PrescQIPP as the Secondary Care Lead. This organisation seeks to support the NHS Medicines Optimisation agenda through the delivery of evidence based resources. This role allowed him to focus on a variety of key topics, the most significant of which was the introduction of biosimilars within the NHS.
James now works as the Regional Medicines Procurement Specialist for London and the East of England. This position has allowed James to continue on his mission to maximise biosimilar usage for the benefit of both NHS providers and commissioners. This work is facilitated by his membership of the National Biosimilars Programme Board. He is also the Chair of the Branded and Biosimilars Subgroup which sits under the Pharmaceutical Market Support Group (PMSG).
There are two parts to the Festival of Biologics: the five world-class international conferences covering Antibodies, Immunotherapy, BioSimilars, Clinical Trials, and High Potency APIs; and an exhibition featuring the most exciting technology and solutions for pharma and biotech. There is a registration fee to attend the conferences. To visit the exhibition is free.
