#healthtechuk update | HSS Refresh, NHSX Refreshments and more…

After today I will disappear on holiday for a fortnight, returning just before NHS Expo and a September packed with events (see below).

techUK members have been asking about how to get on to the HSS Framework and what business is flowing through it – so we’re hosting a series of webinars and face to face events with the team at NHSE, beginning next week.

Our members have also voiced concern about Medical Device Regulations that come into force next year, so we are hosting a session with the MHRA to help members prepare for the changes.

And we had an inclination that some of our members enjoy refreshments at the end of a hard day’s work, so we’re hosting a joint drinks reception with NHSX in Manchester as the new outfit makes it’s first NHS Expo appearance.

These are just three of many events coming up… do scroll down for the full list.

Speak soon,
