Insider's Northern Powerhouse Health Innovation 2019 conference
Earlier this week representatives from Ashburton attended the Insider run Northern Powerhouse Health Innovation 2019 conference.
Presentations and panel discussions majored on the government’s new package to support innovation in the NHS and how the private sector health companies in the North West can add value to this policy.
Prediction, prevention, diagnosis and treatment were pivotal to many of the points raised and great stories of how the Northern Powerhouse is already one of the world leaders in this sector, given the work taking place currently around the region.
With a keynote speech by Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care and further discussions being held with Dr Liz Mear, Chief Executive of The Innovation Agency, Dr Sherry Kothary, Director of Lancaster University’s Health Innovation Campus amongst many prominent others, the delegates were given a fabulous insight into developments within the region and goals to work together to form a leading network for health providers across the globe.
