Transforming health and social care: a Welsh perspective

Innovation (AHSN)

It is an exciting time for those working in the life sciences sector, a place where innovators can help transform health and social care systems and overall quality of life. Governments, health and social systems and private companies are thinking big, whether advancing emerging fields like precision medicine to improve patient outcomes, or transforming systems to meet our evolving needs.

But we all know that innovating in health and social care can be difficult. Fragmented services, complex processes and limited resources are challenging. In Wales, Life Sciences Hub Wales is working hard to support health, social care and industry to overcome such hurdles.

As a nation, we are small and agile enough for easy navigation, but impactful enough with our economic ecosystem. Our joined-up services offer the ability to provide system-wide access from primary care, hospitals and out in the community. The business-friendly environment, highly skilled workforce and renowned life sciences academic landscape also provide opportunities for funding, research and partnerships.

Hear about the ambitions to drive a system-wide innovation on a national scale and find out how it will benefit the 3 million people living in Wales. The session will also explore how the team can support your ideas, understand what’s working well across UK regions and identify opportunities for collaboration.

This session is part of the Innovation Zone and is brought to you by The AHSN Network. The AHSN Network is a key partner in the Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC) at NHS England.
