Health Tech Conference – Pro Manchester
No. 1 Circle Square, Oxford Road, Manchester, M1 7ED
The past 18 months has thrown everything we know up into the air and amongst the chaos lots of questions have been raised about how healthcare is delivered. Now, as we begin to see how the dust will settle, there is an incredible opportunity to do some things very differently.
At the pro-manchester Health Tech Conference we will explore how the healthcare sector, its staff and users have adapted and a new normal has emerged. We will also look at what innovative ideas have been developed and what kind of a difference are they going to make to the future of healthcare delivery in the UK. We will be exploring the changes in legislation, operating methods and culture and how all these things are driving a fundamental shift in our healthcare system for good.
Join us in the live event or watch online. This hybrid event will comprise a range of keynotes, demos and panel discussions.
