#healthtechuk Health and Social Care Council election results

Following an open election, with 19 nominations from a range of stellar candidates, the results are in! The Council plays an essential role in guiding the work of the programme team, providing a sounding board for activity and steering our work as to better represent the health tech industry in its totality. We are fortunate enough to represent a diverse mix of SMEs, large multinationals and companies both in the health and the social care space.

Congratulations to the newly elected Council members and commiserations to all those who were unsuccessful this time around. Without further ado, the members of techUK Health and Social Care Council for 2020 are:

Adrian Flowerday, MD, Docobo

As a reminder to all those who didn't make it on this time round, membership at techUK does not operate on a two-tiered basis and anyone who has not been elected for the current cycle is encouraged to stay active and involved with the programme team to ensure that your voice is heard and represented.
