HL7 UK Closed Mailing lists

The Members list is where announcements are made and general news is communicated. Members are automatically subscribed to this list when joining HL7 UK. Organisational and Benefactor members can subscribe additional names to the lists by contacting the HL7 UK Webmaster or you can subscribe directly. Please use company email addresses where possible for ease of identification.

Please note that mailshots to the HL7 UK Members List on non HL7 meetings MUST be sent to the HL7 UK Webmaster for verification before being posted to the list. If this request is accepted it is limited to two mailshots unless additional justification has been received for for any subsequent shots for the same event.
