Bristol Health Partners

On 10-11 October, the Festival of Health will explore the big issues facing the NHS and health today, including: How does the NHS work? Do we have a caring society? Should we focus more on prevention of illness through better living and creating healthier cities? How should we use technology?


The first open discussion of the 'Bristol Health Collaborative' on 9 September saw 50 health and care professionals, academics and members of the public meet to discuss the challenges the health and care system faces that could be solved by technology or innovation.


In September, Severn Pathology hosted an event at Southmead Hospital Bristol which looked at the future of genomics in the NHS. Over the summer the Government announced a project to sequence 100,000 genes by 2017 - particularly mapping rare diseases and cancers.
