Innovation within the healthcare sector is accelerating at an unprecedented rate, fuelled by the desire to significantly improve the way we diagnose, monitor, treat and care for our patients. These developments are not only resulting in better outcomes for patients, but also improving the working environment for clinicians and reducing costs to healthcare providers.

Within this dynamic and constantly evolving field, the role of user-centred design is becoming ever more important, ensuring that newly developed technologies and services are providing maximum positive impact for patients while improving the overall effectiveness of our public services. This requires a multi-disciplinary and integrated design approach.

Now in its fourth year, Product Design Scotland’s traditional summer design event will explore the role of product design in supporting the delivery of healthcare innovation. Attendees will hear perspectives from experts on NHS design approaches, quality management considerations and the views from the design consultancy sector.

At the end of the formal presentations, attendees are invited to continue discussions during a drinks reception with nibbles, all within the fantastic setting of St. Luke’s, a former church now top Glasgow Arts venue.

This is always a popular event so book your place early to avoid disappointment.
