From Lord Carter:

My report, published in February 2016, highlights key areas where NHS Trusts can make efficiency and productivity gains and use technology and innovation to best effect in the process.

To keep our industry partners informed of progress I will be giving the keynote Address at the Hospital Innovations Conference in on April 25th this year. The event will demonstrate how innovation can be introduced rapidly into the working practice of healthcare estates and infrastructure to achieve efficiency and improved patient care

As Honorary Patron of IHEEM, I will be presenting the first ‘Carter Innovation Award’ during the proceedings. This will be given to the Trust or organisation which best represents the use of innovation to improve healthcare estates and infrastructure.

I look forward to seeing you at the Conference and encourage you to put forward projects you have been involved with that can be considered for the Award.


Yours sincerely,

Patrick Carter
