Join us on 27 Feb for webinars sharing insights on digital primary care

Join us Tuesday, 27 February 2024, for our digital primary care event – a day of virtual discussion on various topics, with five webinars featuring expert panellists from across the health and care.

Our HTN Now events are held on Microsoft Teams and provide an opportunity to hear about projects and programmes talking place in digital healthcare across the NHS and beyond. Learn from others, ask questions and come away inspired.

You’ll hear about how Healthtech-1 automates new patient registrations and lab report filing, and how their 471 live surgeries have collectively saved 85,000 hours of staff time. They’re a small startup grown out of a GP surgery and are on a mission to free up NHS staff time.
