EMN EVENT: Finding solutions for South Tyneside NHS unmet needs.
January 28, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Many of you will remember and may have even attended our unmet needs with the NHS way back in early 2020 when we could meet together in a room! The event proved to be a huge success and has resulted in a number of our businesses now working with the NHS on a range of projects where their expertise and manufacturing capabilities has helped fulfil unmet needs.
This isn’t about creating the next wonder drug or building some sort of scientific wizardry but looks at providing practical and sometimes simple solutions to resolve a wide range of problems. These problems could include literally any form of manufacturing or engineering.
Whilst we can no longer meet face to face at the moment we have decided to provide another event based on the same parameters but with different unmet needs.
This will be held via zoom on Thursday 28th January at 1pm and you can register by clicking the link at the foot of this email.
We will hear from Teresa Fortune who you will remember from our 2020 event. Teresa is Head of Innovation at South Tyneside and & Sunderland (ST&S) NHS FT and has worked supporting translational research and the economic and business development of the UK life sciences and healthcare sector since 2004. As Healthcare Specialist Lead with the Regional Development Agency, One North East, she lead on strategy realignment and developing key relationships and strategic projects with stakeholders, including UKTI, BIS, DH, pharma and local SMEs, NHS and Academic partnerships
So please join Engineering & Manufacturing Network and South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust to understand the importance of innovation to the NHS, the challenge of addressing unmet needs and how this is delivered within a regional NHS Trust.
