Technology used to improve the care of Airedale Hospital patients will be showcased at a major national conference.

The hospital’s chief executive, Bridget Fletcher, and endocrinology consultant, Dr Richard Pope, will be running two seminars at the Health and Care Innovation Expo, hosted by NHS England in Manchester on March 3 and 4.

Mrs Fletcher said: “This event gives us the chance to share our learning with delegates from throughout the country. We also hope to learn from others who have brought about innovative changes to how they deliver healthcare for the benefit of their local communities.”

During the event, there will also be demonstrations of Airedale Hospital’s innovative telemedicine work.
