Transforming healthcare – everybody’s business

Businesses looking to work with the NHS and social care are invited to a special life sciences event within the International Business Festival.

‘Transforming healthcare – everybody’s business’ (Tuesday, 26 June) is organised by the Innovation Agency, whose role is spreading innovations in health and care.

The day will be introduced by Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram, who has highlighted innovation and connectivity among his top priorities.

It will be the perfect opportunity for individual innovators and companies to find out how to connect with hospitals, commissioners and nationally funded programmes.

Delegates will hear from senior NHS leaders running multi million-pound initiatives such as the Lancashire and South Cumbria Test Bed; and learn about opportunities to get involved with Merseyside’s four Global Digital Exemplar trusts.

There will be a spotlight on funding opportunities and a chance to watch companies making their final pitch in a UK-Ireland EIT Health funding competition.

The event will have a particular focus on digital health, showcasing international collaborations and national initiatives. It will also offer health and care staff the chance to learn about innovative new products and systems which are transforming patient care.

Innovation Agency Chief Executive Dr Liz Mear said: “We are connecting as many businesses as possible with opportunities to get involved in health. The NHS and social care need to innovate to transform the way care is delivered and we want to encourage our partners in business to work with us. This event is an invitation to join our network.”
