NeedleSmart, along with guests, attended the 2020 Medilink North of England Healthcare Business Awards held at The Lowry Hotel in Manchester. The evening was in association with Insider, and saw industry, academia and the NHS come together to toast the achievements of health sector organisations across the North.

The black tie dinner showcased an amazing industry which is vital to the health and wellbeing of the region and demonstrated the North’s capabilities, innovation and commercial successes. NeedleSmart were shortlisted in the ‘Innovation’ category; other categories including ‘Export Achievement Award’ and ‘Partnership with Academia Award’.

The guest speaker was international leader Mr Rafael Guerrero, paediatric and adult congenital cardiac surgeon. Mr Guerrero is the co-founder of the award winning Alder Hey Innovation Hub and is a huge advocate of the use of 3D printing and immersive technology in healthcare. Rafael is passionate about working with companies and academic centres who are at the cutting edge of technology and he delivered a fantastic, inspirational speech at the awards.
