Latest events

We run a series of events, often in partnership, to support innovators, health providers and patients turn great ideas into positive health impact.

For example if you are looking to develop and commercialise your innovations, our insight to impact workshops, clinical innovator or scale-up academy events are a great opportunity to meet peers, hear from experts, debate key topics and access 1:1 support to develop your idea. The MedTechBOOST programme we initiated in 2019 brings together researchers, academics, entrepreneurs and early stage start-ups to develop, validate and design solutions to some of the biggest health challenges. The topic in 2019 was mental health and healthy ageing.

We also convene senior leaders and industry experts at our regional leaders innovation forums to discuss, debate and make connections to help solve some of the biggest issues faced in health and care.

Our innovation exchange events are designed to match innovators with local healthcare providers around specific challenges and our medical directors masterclasses bring together senior clinicians from trusts across our region to share best practice and learn about innovation in our region.

If you want to hear about events as they are announced, sign up for our newsletter now or join the mailing list for our innovator masterclasses.

East of England Stroke Forum (online learning): Driving post stroke

18 January, 2024, 6:o0 PM (BST)

Driving is a complex task, requiring multiple skills which are often compromised by stroke. Clinician’s can often be very unsure about what advice to give, what assessments to use and the process of informing the DVLA. Working with our local Driving Assessment Centre has supported our ability to evaluate the service, collect data and develop a new driving pathway from acute to community. We hope to share some learning and insights that we learnt along the way whilst undergoing our driving project.

The learning objectives for the evening are:

  • To understand the complexity of driving as an activity
  • To understand the impact that stroke can have on someone’s ability to safely return to driving
  • To feel more confident in your role as a clinician regarding driving post stroke
  • To have an awareness of how driving assessment centres can support safe return of driving post stroke, and the other services they offer.
  • To gain some shared insights of the service elevation that we conducted and the potential implications to clinical practice
