Speakers at a recent Stronger Together webinar predicted a strong economic recovery following the easing of lockdown restrictions this summer.

Hakim Group CEO Imran Hakim explained that many of his company’s stores had seen reduced volume of patients but had recouped revenue via patients that were willing to spend more on purchases.

Leading economist Robert Martin-Fagg added: ‘Assuming the vaccines are still effective with new variants of Covid, there is going to be a significant surge in spending by the end of summer.’

Martin-Fagg added that practices should consider reequipping their practices to take advantage of the recently announced 130% capital allowance.
