Following the resounding success of HETT North 2023, we are thrilled to announce the triumphant return of this leading healthcare event to Manchester on the 28th of February for its highly anticipated second instalment. This year, HETT North experienced exponential growth, doubling in size and undergoing a transformative shift from its original conference-style format to a comprehensive exhibition floor. 

The reimagined format not only signifies the event's evolution but also introduces exciting new features, including additional theatres such as the Integrated Care Forum. This dedicated space is designed to delve into the future of Integrated Care Systems, adding an excited and much welcomed dimension to the HETT North experience 

In addition, the debut of the Digital Primary and Social Care streams marked significant milestones, offering dedicated platforms to support and explore the digital evolution within primary and social care sectors. These new streams featured the likes of NHS England’s Chief Social Worker, Mark Nicholas and Chris Nortcliff, Digital Lead – Greater Manchester Primary Care Provider Board. 

Another new feature at this year’s event was the Innovation Trail, designed to showcase the latest organisations at the cutting edge of digital health. Delegates were invited to make their way across the show floor to marked stands to discover the latest HealthTech innovations.  

“I found this year's event really interesting, engaging and inspiring. Lots of interesting topics covered by the speakers, and some great calls to action for our digital colleagues across the NHS.” - Joe Speed, Data Services Manager, Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

The session reflected on the success and challenges of Integrated Care Systems so far, whilst looking at what the future could bring.  

The event concluded with a captivating fireside chat featuring Mark Nicholas, Chief Social Worker, NHS England, and Minal Bakhai, Director of Primary Care Transformation, NHS England.
