We’re pleased to be exhibiting at the Health Excellence Through Technology (HETT) show on 26 and 27 September 2023, at ExCeL London.

Come and see us at our exhibition stand (number F38) where you can speak to AHSN colleagues and partners; find out more about the AHSNs and how to access support; and meet 16 AHSN-supported innovators.

Our partners

We are joined by colleagues from the NHS Innovation Service, led by the Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC) – an online service for health innovators, to support them to get their products, services or ideas adopted in the NHS, and in turn provide innovative solutions to NHS challenges.

We are also joined by our partners from the Clinical Entrepreneur Programme. The programme is also part of the AAC and brings together industry, government, regulators, patients and the NHS to remove barriers and accelerate the introduction of new ground-breaking treatments and diagnostics, which have the potential to transform care.
