INSIDE PHARMA—what’s in it for you?
‘YOU’ will be a critical thinker on the medicines, medical devices, diagnostic tests, and any other allegedly therapeutic products, that you, your loved ones, friends and colleagues may be offered or exposed to.
Critical thinking means unfettered access to facts, evidence and deep, inside knowledge. MSN fed propaganda is not what you are looking for—you want to hear the truth, and that’s what you will get here.
Who is behind it?
It’s me, Hedley Rees.
During August 2021, I was expelled from LinkedIn, where I had been well regarded as the voice of change for the pharma industry. Open minded people there valued my vision of an industry where patients and healthcare professionals were central to medical progress. The ones that didn’t orchestrated my permanent removal.
