Rise and Design: Innovations in Health

Friday 10 May 2019 : 08.30 – 12.30

Northern Design Centre, Gateshead NE8 3DF

We are seeing some incredible advances in healthcare, from robotic surgeons to apps that can monitor our every step.

And many of these advances have originated here in the North East.

So we’ve brought together some companies who are exploring and developing innovative healthcare products, to give us an insight into how they came about, and the journey from idea to finished product.

Speakers include:

Stephen Taylor-Parker, Medipex                                   

Medipex is an innovation hub for the NHS, and connects NHS organisations across the North with industry and academia internationally. Stephen will give an overview of the process by which new innovations are adopted by the NHS, and issues such as engaging with users and barriers to be overcome.


Further speakers will be announced soon.

This is a great opportunity to learn about the impact that design is making, as well as a chance to meet and chat with like minded people.
