#HealthtechUK update - Health and Social Care member survey

Dear members,

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, collaboration between health and care providers and the technology industry has never been more important.

To help guide our work, this month, the techUK Health and Social Care team is running a short survey to identify the priorities of our members. This will help shape our efforts to further support the healthtech community throughout the UK during these times.

Your views are important to us, therefore we would appreciate it if you could spare a few minutes to complete it. None of your individual answers will be shared outside of the techUK team. The survey, which can be accessed here, will remain open until midnight 15 June.

In the meantime, please find below a list of events the Health and Social Care team will be organising over the next couple of months, where you will be able to join your peers and explore the latest opportunities and challenges in our industry, and raise any questions that you may have for further discussion.
