CMO Breakfast – The Ivy, London

Only Medics was an acquisition from the talented and innovative Dr Elaine Ford in 2009. In 2012 when I joined Clinical Professionals as Group Managing Director having worked with Elaine for many years previously, the legacy of her brand and driving it forward was a key focus for me.

Last year saw Only Medics most successful trading year in our history and we would like to sincerely thank our candidates and clients alike. Alongside this success was the launch of CPL Physicians, a sister brand to Only Medics in the US and an enhanced Executive Search service that last year fulfilled 100% of assignments.

We were delighted in 2017 to welcome Louise Wraight, Divisional Director for OM back from maternity leave. Under Louise’s leadership OM has flourished over the last few years and she continues to bring innovation and value to the Medic talent market.

In December 2017 our Boston, MA business CPL Physicians, held a CMO dinner at the Harvard Dining Club, moderated by Stuart Gilboy, Managing Director in the US. There were some fascinating insights from across the pond, however, the most valuable feedback was based around the groups delight at peer to peer interaction and an intimate platform to discuss the many issues that have been emerging within Medical Affairs.

In April 2018 we will be inviting a similar group to join us at a networking breakfast at The Ivy, Covent Garden. Moderated by Dr Mark Edwards, CSO Board Advisor to the Clinical Professionals Group, we look forward to giving CMO’s the platform to meet with their peers and under Chatham House rules have constructive and open discussion around, and perhaps identify resolution to some of the current challenges within the medical affairs landscape. The event is an exclusive opportunity for CMO’s, VP & Executive Directors within the Life Sciences sector to discuss market intelligence and the challenges within the industry; from Brexit to NICE Submissions, Investments/Funding, qualified staffing shortages, FDA Approvals etc.

The breakfast is an invitation only event fully sponsored by Only Medics, should you wish to be part of this first UK event then please contact me at or Louise Wraight on
