Latest events

We run a series of events, often in partnership, to support innovators, health providers and patients turn great ideas into positive health impact.

For example if you are looking to develop and commercialise your innovations, our insight to impact workshops, clinical innovator or scale-up academy events are a great opportunity to meet peers, hear from experts, debate key topics and access 1:1 support to develop your idea. The MedTechBOOST programme we initiated in 2019 brings together researchers, academics, entrepreneurs and early stage start-ups to develop, validate and design solutions to some of the biggest health challenges. The topic in 2019 was mental health and healthy ageing.

We also convene senior leaders and industry experts at our regional leaders innovation forums to discuss, debate and make connections to help solve some of the biggest issues faced in health and care.

Our innovation exchange events are designed to match innovators with local healthcare providers around specific challenges and our medical directors masterclasses bring together senior clinicians from trusts across our region to share best practice and learn about innovation in our region.

The conference is an opportunity to learn about the national strategy for genomics from the national Director of Nursing & Midwifery, hear about the education programme and workforce planning to support large scale change, hear from patients and their experiences of genomic testing, learn from clinical nurse specialists and specialist midwives who use genomic testing in their patient pathways and be part of the conversation around how genomics can be integrated into your patient pathway.
