There are some incredible advances in healthcare, from robotic surgeons to apps that can monitor our every step.
And many of these advances have originated here in the North East.
So we'll hear from some companies who are exploring and developing innovative healthcare products, to give us an insight into how they came about, and the journey from idea to finished product.
Stephen Taylor-Parker, Medipex (www.medipex.co.uk)
Medipex is an innovation hub for the NHS, and connects NHS organisations across the North with industry and academia internationally. Stephen will give an overview of the process by which new innovations are adopted by the NHS, and issues such as engaging with users and barriers to be overcome.
More speakers will be announced soon
