Co-founder and director of Indigo Medical’s communication services division Tina Patel said: “Our vision has always been to differentiate our services through world-class scientific know-how and client service.

“We are delighted to have found, in imc group, an organisation that not only shares this philosophy but enables us to expand our geographic footprint, providing a best-in-class service to our clients.”
