Weqas 2019 – A Year In Review

We have had a fantastic year in 2019. A few of the highlights include attending some of the largest medical exhibitions in the world such as MedLab in Dubai and AACC in Los Angeles. This year was also hugely successful for our Director, Annette Thomas, who was honoured with not one but two awards!

We are very proud of our Weqas team who have been raising money for various charities throughout the year, including Children In Need, Holly’s Christmas Appeal, Epilepsy Action, Save The Children and The Big Issue Foundation. In total our staff have raised over £900 this year!
