Event details:

The UK is a leader in world class innovation in life sciences with Cambridge at the epicentre. Through advances in understanding biological systems, the changing landscape of genomics and a revolution in digital systems - the cluster has created immense opportunities to improve human health. Cambridge therefore congratulates itself that clinicians, researchers and industry work together to form effective partnerships but is this really the case?

At our event, the Chief Executives of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, Royal Papworth Hospital and Phillips UK and Ireland with the Managing Director of UCL Partners will outline how the NHS must and will engage in meaningful collaboration with industry and researchers to deliver improved healthcare.

There will also be a Q&A session with a panel of experts: Jane Osbourn (MedImmune), Piers Ricketts (Eastern Academic Health Science Network EAHSN), Tara Donnelly (Health Innovation Network South London), Karen Lightning-Jones (Roche), Mark Kroese (The PHG Foundation) and Roland Sinker (Cambridge University Hospitals) which will be chaired by Professor Patrick Maxwell (University of Cambridge). They will discuss a range of topics from the demands of acute hospitals through to mental health and long term multimorbidity - the greatest healthcare challenges facing us all.

Please note that this event is being filmed.
