Health Innovation Surgery
Every 6 weeks we host a lively session for innovators and industry at our Management Group meeting that serves as a sounding board for new ideas. Innovators will have access to a diverse group of clinicians and academics, who will be able to provide their expertise, and act as potential collaborators. Meetings are open to absolutely anyone active or interested in solving clinical problems with novel devices.
