THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will discuss the future for medical technologies, devices and diagnostics in England, following the Government’s announcement of regulatory changes and new funding in its response to the Accelerated Access Review.
Delegates will consider priorities for improving access to technology, and for increasing its uptake in the NHS in light of the £86m funding package - which will include a Pathway Transformation Fund to tackle barriers to adoption and help integration; allocations for the Digital Health Technology Catalyst and for Academic Health Science Networks to improve local adoption.
Further sessions look at NHS England’s extended Test Bed programme, in the context of the launch of the second wave of test beds - as well as the next steps for the NHS Innovation Accelerator.
Attendees will assess further measures to support uptake and increase access - including the Innovation and Technology Payment (ITP) as NHS England announces four innovations that will be fast-tracked through the ITP programme. Those attending will also examine the impact of Brexit on patient access to medical technologies, following Brexit Health Alliance’s report which called on the Government to publish its plans for the regulation of devices urgently.
