About this seminar

This seminar, organised with Philips through the Fund's Corporate Partnership Programme, explored some of the issues affecting how the NHS can be well placed to adopt the benefits of new technologies.

Technology alone is rarely the solution, so the discussion explored how NHS colleagues have worked differently, supported by new technology, particularly to reduce unnecessary admissions to hospital, and deliver care closer to home.
