About this talk

In common with the rest of the UK, the West Midlands needs to reduce pressure on health and care systems, helping citizens to better manage their own health. 5G is a key component; providing the connectivity to deliver care and support away from the clinic and in the community or at home.

During this session you'll learn:

-- Details of trials underway in the region and already delivering benefits

-- How by using 5G to spearhead healthcare innovation, the West Midlands is leading the way in improving patient care and transforming healthcare productivity.
