An ageing population and the associated increased prevalence of chronic illness is already placing enormous pressure on the NHS and healthcare delivery. Exacerbated by workforce challenges, the long tail of the covid-19 pandemic, and a worsening fiscal environment, the challenge for the NHS and the future of healthcare delivery is clear for all to see.

Through a series of panel discussions with senior thought leaders from public policy, industry, and the wider healthcare system we will explore how investment and uptake of innovation in life sciences and healthcare can both: help the NHS to tackle the challenges it faces today and support it for the future; and ensure the UK grows and maintains global leadership in life sciences.
