The Expo in Manchester was a unique celebration of innovation, enterprise and collaboration, bringing together NHS and social care leaders, commissioners, industry influencers and many more who can help the NHS implement its future plans to transform the UK’s 70-year-old healthcare system.

This year’s NHS Expo started with a beam of morning sunshine over the ever-popular HealthTech Zone, and finished with a late afternoon ray of hope, as the secretary of state for health and social care announced a £200 million cash boost to fund additional global digital exemplars (GDEs), including the first community trust GDEs.

It was a fitting finale to the Expo, which is a unique celebration of innovation, enterprise and collaboration, bringing together NHS and social care influencers, commissioners, industry leaders and many more who can help the NHS implement its five-year Forward View strategy which is designed to transform the UK’s 70-year-old healthcare system.

As headline sponsors, we’re proud and excited to collaborate with NHS England and all these partners because we are working to further develop healthcare transformation to help patients live better days.
