Innovation is the current ‘hot topic’ in health and care circles. How can we ensure new solutions really transform healthcare for the better? Join the West of England Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) at their healthcare innovation expo to explore opportunities and solutions being developed right here in the West of England, as well as those making a global impact. Speakers will include academic leaders, innovators and those transforming regional and international services.

Digital and med-tech exhibitors will showcase the latest products, apps and services, with a focus on those addressing local needs. You might find solutions to those tricky problems your own organisation is trying to solve.

Whether you are interested in digital innovation, system transformation or discovering the latest products and services, our Expo will enable you to implement changes that will save time, money and ultimately lives.
