TMED10 - Disruptive Innovation in Healthcare Conference, Derry/Londonderry, 11th & 12th September 2019.

To align with the theme and to mark our landmark 10th year, we were delighted to have Professor Rafael Bengoa open proceedings. Professor Bengoa has been a visionary in his work on “Chronicity” which detailed the need for upheaval of the healthcare system in the Basque, Spain, while he was the Health Minister there. As a result of his change programme in Spain, he was invited to develop a strategy for Northern Ireland known as “Systems not Structures” more fondly popularised as “The Bengoa Report”. We were honoured to welcome Professor Bengoa to TMED10 to deliver his Keynote address on how NI has delivered on his report.

We are also celebrating 10 years of C-TRIC, a unique partnership between Ulster UniversityDerry City & Strabane District Council and Western Health and Social Care Trust bringing together clinicians, academics and industry for life-saving and life-changing healthcare research.
