Nuclear 2 Health A call to innovate

Nuclear to Health (N2H) – A Call to Innovate

 

Nuclear to Health (N2H) is a novel technology / knowledge exchange project designed to match clinical unmet needs from the NHS with expertise and technology from the Nuclear Industry.  The aim is to improve patient care and drive efficiency savings by identifying potential innovative solutions through encouraging dialogue between the clinical healthcare community and experts from Industry and Academia.

 

The N2H project has been developed by a consortium of health, industry and academic partners, including NHS Trusts, The National Nuclear Laboratory and our leading local Universities. 

 

Following on from a successful Healthcare and Nuclear engagement event in March, we are holding 3 half day meetings for NHS staff to present their specific clinical unmet needs to an audience of Nuclear technologists and experts.  The audience will have an opportunity to discuss these needs and, following the event, to submit potential solutions to these healthcare problems.

 

Follow the links below to find out more.

 

Nuclear Experts and Technologists from Industry & Academia  - please register your interest in attending - www.trustech.org.uk/n2h
