about this event

We explore just how far the delivery of health and care will be improved by new technology, and what the latest predictions are by those working in the field of how medicine will really be practised in ten years’ time.  


We'll look at the practical realities of how the UK can make progress with technology, how to overcome staff resistance to change, how to secure appropriate funding and how the new generations of technophilic patients and carers are likely to respond.

we'll look at: 

  • The principal technological advances affecting the delivery of health and care in the UK by 2028
  • The impact these advances will have in enabling improved patient outcomes and more cost-effective treatment
  • How the areas we're responsible for will need to change in order to realise these improvements
  • Planning training and education to ensure that staff are prepared and keen to embrace new ways of delivering care
  • How to make a strong business case for future financial commitments to realise these changes
