The pressure to find new ways of working continues, not just to meet the financial challenges facing the sector but also to deliver more effective services which better meet the needs of users and communities. Digital and networked technologies can provide part of the solution. In Suffolk we are grasping the opportunities this brings and are coming together to explore options and find better – and faster – ways to connect with the public and deliver services.  But there are still opportunities to strengthen our ambition.

Although innovations across science and technology over the past century have radically increased life expectancy, technology has not yet delivered its full potential in this arena.  Harnessing the power of the digital revolution is key to meeting the challenges ahead and in delivering high-quality sustainable health and care services.  It has already transformed the standard, cost and accessibility of many other industries and there is a need for this kind of systemic change through innovations to meet the needs of future health and care services in Suffolk. 

The key objectives of the event are to provide thought Leadership in technology and innovation in health and social care and to build on the ever-growing collaboration across health and care systems in Suffolk.

The event will include inputs from leading national figures, including Lord Victor Adebowale, Chief Executive of Turning Point and NHS England Board meeting, local contributions and showcases of existing and emerging practice across the UK and beyond.
