Healthtech during COVID-19: Scaling up and stepping up to meet demand

Tom Russell, Programme Manager for Health and Social Care at techUK, presents this month’s episode.

In the latest techUK podcast, we look at the latest developments in the UK’s health tech space as the COVID-19 pandemic shows no signs of stopping.

Tom Russell, Programme Manager for Health and Social Care at techUK, sits down (virtually!) with Nicola Haywood-Alexander, former Chief Information Officer of Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, Paul Bensley, CEO of X-on, and Garry McCord, Chief Strategy Officer at Servelec, to talk about a new initiative aiming to get the right health tech to the right place, as well as the efforts of techUK members to support health and care professionals, organisations and citizens during this crisis.   

If you would like a copy of Garry's slides, please drop the team an email and we will send a shareable version.
