Hello,

I posted a thread recently here about a business which I'm currently setting up.

I am going to be a virtual project manager/virtual assistant, I have a website, business cards, am booked onto some 4networking events. I've received some excellent advice from this board which I am largely following; namely, to pursue the project management side more than the admin side. My problem is my niche which another forum has suggested is imperative in order to market effectively and secure client interest.

Here's my problem.....my background is IT project manager to the NHS (substansive and contractor). Logically, as my experience and expertise rest with the NHS, I should focus on pursuing this as my main client base. I would like opinions on whether you think this to be tangible, please. Would the NHS (I'm thinking acute trusts, GP consortia, community trusts) consider outsourcing project management/admin to a freelance virtual person? There are potentially issues around information governance, security, recruitment policy I realise. I guess I would like to know if you think this to be non-starter and if not, point me in the right direction.

Thanks
