Launch and focus: meet the healthtech companies set to transform the NHS

9 September 2019
8:30 am - 5:00 pm


We warmly invite NHS clinicians and decision makers to apply for a place at an interactive two-part “Launch + Focus” event designed to help you get to grips with healthtech / digital innovations available in your speciality area.

The morning session, running from 8:30 – 13:45, will begin with a keynote – to be announced – followed by a look back at the successes Accelerator alumni have achieved so far. Four awards will be presented, led by Tara Donnelly, Chief Digital Officer at NHSX; Theo Blackwell, Chief Digital Officer for London; Ian Abbs, CEO at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust; and Pam Garside, partner at Newhealth. Awards will be followed by the official announcement of the names of the next set of companies set to make their mark on the NHS through the Accelerator. Confirmed to speak is Dr George Verghese, the newly appointed Clinical Director at Lambeth Primary Care Network.

In the afternoon, beginning at 13:45 and closing at 17:00, you will give constructive feedback and advice to the companies, as they embark on their NHS journey. You will also have the opportunity to discuss and troubleshoot some of your organisation’s own challenges with respect to digital innovation.

Lunch will be provided for attendees of both events, and for the afternoon guests only, an evening drinks reception will follow, kindly hosted by IET London.

If you would like to attend, please email dhla@digitalhealth.london with the subject title “Application for tickets to launch and focus,” outlining your name, role, organisation, and health specialism (if you have one). In your email, please provide a short explanation of your interest in digital health (for example any digital health projects you have been involved in) and if you have your own digital health innovation. These events are aimed at NHS clinicians and decision makers only – we unfortunately cannot accommodate other parties.

Please note that this event is in two parts. Those wishing to attend the afternoon must have attended the morning session. Unfortunately, due to space limitations, we cannot accommodate everyone who attends the morning event in the afternoon. Please therefore make clear in your application for tickets if you wish to attend just the morning, or both events.
