How will UK policy decisions impact patient experience?

Date: 11 May 2023
Time: 10:00am – 4pm

On 11th May, join BHTA as we bring together key healthcare leaders and suppliers to discover how current policy decisions are shaping the future of health and social care, impacting UK patients, and what it means for you and your business.

Updates to policies informing Regulation, Integration, Sustainability and Innovation mean suppliers are having to adapt their practices to align with these new priorities.

If you are a supplier of products and services to the NHS and social care sector, crucial changes in health and social care policy and structures will not only be impacting your business, but also the lives of patients across the UK.  

Hear from senior leaders from the DHSC’s MedTech Directorate and British Standards Institution, as well as political consultants and healthcare organisations, as they outline future policy directions and learn how collaboration will ultimately improve the patient experience.
