Innovation, research and technology are essential elements of providing the best possible health services.
Our commercial team are joining delegates from science and tech companies at the MedTech in a Changing World conference to look at how they can work more closely with the NHS to speed up development.
The team will be exploring how technology companies can work with NHS – in primary and secondary care – to develop innovation and research and speed up the launch of new services to improve patient care.
Andrea Burroughs, associate director of the commercial enterprise team and Melanie Shield, commercial manager for the Innovation Lab, will be talking about the role Newcastle Hospitals’ commercial team has in encouraging and spreading innovation, and will share the particular success story of the Innovation Lab, part of Newcastle Hospitals.
