HTN Now 2020, takes place 3-4 November, two days of digital events to hear from health and care teams across the country.

HTN Now is a new series ‘for the moment’ or ‘for the now’, where we curate a series of sessions to support our continued focus to share experiences, learnings, new innovations and technologies from across health and care.

The sessions will be centred around real-life examples, projects, technologies and innovations that are happening right now. The sessions will help provide a platform to discuss these projects, the idea or approach, what they have done, how they have done it, what has been delivered and what they have learned.

Sessions will typically last up to 55 minutes and each will be recorded. Please register to attend live or receive the recordings.
