Susan Venables, Highland Marketing founder and client services director, commented on the partnership: “As the PR and communications partner for HTN it is important that we support these events. They are very much aligned with our ethos of providing a platform to enable the sharing of information and knowledge to help accelerate the adoption and use of digital technologies across health and social care.”

“We have witnessed rapid change and uptake of health tech during Covid-19 so it is important to ensure that learnings and experiences are not lost in the future. The HTN events will enable this to happen by allowing suppliers and NHS organisations to engage and educate on deploying digital programmes and the benefits they can deliver for NHS frontline staff and patients.”
