Professor Sue Colley is invited to the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) 2015

Professor Sue Colley was invited to the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) 2015 by Lord Darzi. Lord Darzi is Director of the Institute of Global Health Innovation at Imperial College London, Vice Chair of the UK Government All Party Parliamentary Group on Global Health and the Executive Chair of the World Innovation Summit for Health.

WISH was formed in response to global challenges facing health services: ageing populations; the growing burden of chronic disease and economic pressures. Accelerating and evening up the distribution of innovation is necessary to ensure that health systems are able to perform at their best. WISH aims to disseminate ideas and new ways of working by bringing together leading innovation experts.

Key messages and themes at the summit were:

“The wealth of the nation has nothing to do with the quality of health care its citizens can enjoy”

The conference provided some great networking opportunities and a long list of ‘follow up’ emails and contacts. One more step on the road to a ‘Southampton Global Health Sciences Network’!
