June Update 

We are just 19 days away from the very first MediWales Connects: NHS Collaboration Conference on 6th July. The programme includes industry presentations from Astra Zeneca, Karl Storz, Novo Nordisk, and Royal Army Medical Corps showcasing innovative training and product development for the Ebola hospital in West Africa.

'NHS Wales: Looking to the future' is the keynote talk from Andrew Goodall, Director General of Department for Health and Social Services and Chief Executive of NHS Wales. Take a look at our programme and speaker list to see what else the day has to offer.

We are offering some final presentation slots during our 'open innovation' workshop, but spaces are limited so please get in touch as soon as possible for this opportunity and for three remaining spaces in our exhibition and feature zone. Contact Tess today to secure your place.
