Understanding the NHS and the Public Sector procurement landscape is difficult, it is very fragmented and hard to navigate. From a ‘Supplier’ perspective, particularly one that is unfamiliar with tendering for Public Sector business, knowing where to go, what to do and how to do it can simply be too much. A lack of knowledge and understanding on the supplier’s part could result in all areas of the Public Sector missing out on innovation.
The timings of the event are as follows:
17:30 - 18:00 - Registration (tea & coffee)
18:00 - 18:40 - Julie Collins " The Golden Rules for Bidding into the NHS”
18:40 - 19:00 - Q&A
19:00 -20:00 - Discussion, networking and food.
Note that tickets for this event are refundable if you attend, but if you don't attend your order will not be refunded. Therefore, provided you show up for the event itself, it's FREE!
The health system on the Isle of Wight is unique; and faces challenges both familiar to the wider NHS, and challenges particular to the island.
Co-hosted by the Isle of Wight NHS Trust and Wessex Academic Health Science Network, the main aim of this Innovation Forum is to bring together the island’s primary and secondary care professionals; to network, share ideas, connect and explore ways to help improve services for the island’s population. Transforming services takes more than one evening, but we aim to start many conversations.
On the night, we will hear from an international speaker – Keith Dewar – who has spent his working life transforming healthcare services on an island with strikingly similar challenges to the Isle of Wight (Prince Edward Island, Canada). Keith will share his hindsight of what worked and what didn’t over the past 15 years.
We will also hear from healthcare innovators (often clinicians) who have developed new ways to tackle current (and future) problems. The Innovation Forum will showcase some exciting innovations which are already impacting other areas of the NHS, as examples of how technology might help some of the island’s challenges.
Refreshments, buffet, and networking time will be provided, and a full agenda will follow. Spaces are limited, so please book as soon as you are able.
If you register, but are later unable to attend on the night, please tell us so we can reallocate your space, as our events are often fully booked with waiting lists.

The course will be geared towards specialist and non-specialist nurses, GPs and the wider group of scientists and health professionals who are not necessarily directly involved with applications of medical genomics but require a basic knowledge.
Teaching will have a strong activity and workshop component with meaningful every day examples to encourage strong understanding of basic principles. This Primer in Genomic Medicine will not require prior genomics or genetics knowledge.
The course content will include:
Upon completion of the course, students will be empowered for further independent learning should they wish and have confidence in their ability to interpret genomic information from non-specialist journals, press releases, Genomics England website etc.
