GS1 Healthcare Conference – 9 and 10 April 2019


Standards are just as important to the Secretary of State for health and social care as it is to GS1 UK Healthcare

In case you managed to miss the Secretary of State’s compelling speech on Monday 11th February 2019, here’s some of the key highlights.

Matt Hancock took to the stage at the Royal Society of Medicine advocating the use of technology and open standards within healthcare to drive interoperability and enhance patient safety. Here he credited the exceptional work of the Scan4Safety programme in delivering these successes and this is where our GS1 standards come in to play.

Join us for our 2019 conference on 9-10 April at Heathrow’s Radisson Blu Edwardian to hear real-life evidence-based case studies of GS1 standards in action.

Discover how our standards can help you maximise your organisation’s efficiencies and help you overcome your most critical challenges too. The benefits are not only real but tangible!
