The personalised medicine technology landscape PHG Foundation’s latest report, is an independent evidence synthesis of a range of innovative technologies that could help deliver on the promise of personalised healthcare for the National Health Service. The report will be launched at an exclusive panel session at this years’ NHS Innovation Expo on Wednesday 5 September.

The NHS is uniquely placed to capitalise on the potential of science and technology for more personalised healthcare, and the 2014 Five Year Forward View and 2015 report Improving Outcomes through Personalised Medicine, set out NHS England’s vision for realising the benefits of personalised medicine within the NHS.

PHG Foundation, University of Cambridge health policy unit, has produced an independent evidence synthesis on the developments in science and new technologies that could have an impact on the greater personalisation of medicine. 

At NHS Expo on Wednesday there will be a one hour session to launch the report, chaired by Prof Dame Sue Hill (Chief Scientific Officer, and SRO for Genomics, NHS England) including an overview of the report’s findings by Dr Mark Kroese Director, PHG Foundation, followed by a panel. We are pleased to say that the session has been considered to be one of the ‘top picks’ of the Expo by Professor Stephen Powis, National Medical Director of NHS England.
