At the Future Blood Testing Network Plus, we are aiming to build a multi-disciplinary community to develop digital health technologies for remote, rapid, affordable and inclusive monitoring and personalised analytics. This two day workshop will feature speakers to discuss the future of healthcare, remote blood testing, monitoring and artificial intelligence (AI).

This event will take place at Leonardo Hotel Southampton (Formerly Jurys Inn). Both days will include lunch and coffee breaks, with day 1 also including a drinks reception with dinner.
