The Child Health Technology conference has been a great success. We have experienced excellent keynote presentations, seminars, and technology demonstrations on a diverse range of child health technology subjects. I have really enjoyed speaking with colleagues from across the country and other parts of the world sharing their knowledge, expertise, and experience.

Some key messages have resonated throughout the conference including the need to include children and young people in the development of technology that they will ultimately use, the importance of addressing digital inclusion, and the need to work collaboratively to ensure that we develop the best technology for children and young people and to support rapid spread and adoption. CHT2021 has been about building a child heath technology community to do this, and I have been inspired by the 238 delegates that have joined us at the UK’s first child health technology conference to build that community.

CHT2021 would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our Sheffield, UK teams – the core team at NIHR CYP MedTech, Marketing Sheffield, Events Management Direct, and TechNative solutions – well done and congratulations on the success of CHT2021!

Thank you to all our delegates for joining us at CHT2021 – your support has inspired us to bring CHT2022 to you next year.

I look forward to seeing you all at Child Health Technology 2022!
