I am very excited to bring the first child health technology conference to the UK and to our home city of Sheffield where some incredible work is taking place.

Child Health Technology 2021 (CHT2021) will bring together healthcare professionals, industry, engineers, designers, academics, and patient representatives around one of the most exciting and fast moving fields in healthcare today.

Join us for two days of inspirational talks from the highest calibre of speakers, discussions around the latest medical technological developments, and live demonstrations. At the heart of the conference will be opportunities for cross-disciplinary networking and collaboration to ensure children and young people receive the best and most advanced healthcare.

As the Director of NIHR Children and Young People MedTech Co-operative, Professor of Child Health, and Director of Research and Innovation at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, I have led on national technology networks that focus on the development and adoption of technology for paediatrics and child health through private and public sector collaboration.

It’s an exciting time to be part of our journey and I hope you can join us and help shape the future of child health technology.
