Category: Industry news


With less than six weeks to go until the GS1 UK healthcare conference, take a look at five reasons why you should attend on 21-22 November.

1. Find out about the latest progress of the Scan4Safety programme

As the six demonstrator sites approach the two year milestone, they'll outline their plans to continue the successes of the last two years and maintain the sustainable use of GS1 standards.

2. Hear from leading healthcare figures

Reflecting the growing momentum behind GS1 standards adoption, this year we'll be joined by leaders from NHS England, the General Medical Council, the Department of Health, the Royal College of Physicians and NHS Improvement. They'll be giving an update on the current challenges facing the NHS, the future vision for healthcare, and how GS1 standards are helping with both.

3. Learn from real life implementations

Seven breakout streams will run on both afternoons, with leaders from Trusts, the Department of Health and suppliers providing their expertise on exactly why and how they've been using standards to provide better care for less.

4. Network with industry peers

On Tuesday evening, you'll have the opportunity to network with other attendees from the conference. We'll be hosting C-suite NHS managers, including CEOs, financial, clinical, pharmacy and medical directors from NHS Trusts and Department of Health leaders for dinner and drinks. And they'll be joined leading suppliers of goods and services to the NHS, as well as healthcare solution providers.

5. Meet with leading solution providers and suppliers to the NHS

Demand for exhibitor space means we've taken on an additional room at the conference this year, displaying an even broader range of the best solution providers and suppliers in healthcare. You'll have plenty of time between sessions to take a look around and find out about the latest technologies and products available.

It's going to be a great two days, I hope to see you there!
