We’re pleased to be exhibiting at the Health Excellence Through Technology (HETT) show on 27 and 28 September 2022, at the ExCeL London.
Come and see us at our exhibition stand (number E58) where you can speak to AHSN colleagues and partners; find out more about the AHSNs and how to access support; and meet 16 AHSN-supported innovators.
We are joined by colleagues from the new NHS Innovation Service, led by the Accelerated Access Collaborative – an online service for health innovators, to support them to get their products, services or ideas adopted in the NHS, and in turn provide innovative solutions to NHS challenges.
You can also learn more about this new service at their talk:
Changing the National Landscape of Innovation, Matt Newman, Deputy Director, Accelerated Access Collaborative – 10:50-11:10am on 27 September, Digital Maturity Forum
We are also joined by our partners from the Innovation Collaborative, a shared learning network that supports rapid deployment of innovative technologies that enable care to be delivered to people at home. The collaborative is commissioned by NHS England as part of its Regional Scaling Programme and launched in November 2020.
