Bhiku Patel, Co-chairman

Over 40 years Vijay and I have sought to build businesses in healthcare that serve the local community and employ people locally. We are delighted that our children and their families are taking on this mantle. We look to them to continue our tradition of entrepreneurship, to invest in the local and national economy, to support charitable causes across the world.
