Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust’s Innovation Forum


Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust’s Innovation Forum aims to offer local companies with an interest in healthcare an insight into challenges faced at Cambridge University Hospitals. This is an opportunity to gain an ‘under the bonnet’ insight into a key challenge faced by the NHS on a daily basis: Frailty.

In the past 12 months, there have been more than 18,500 emergency admissions to Addenbrooke’s of those over 65.

Many elderly patients admitted to hospital face a number of issues aside from their acute medical problem. How these other issues are managed can impact not only their short-term recovery, but also that patient’s level of independence and quality of life in the years to come. We want to prevent that patient from deteriorating to such a point that they require long-term care.


We are delighted to be bringing together a range of perspectives in order to discuss and debate this theme and identify how innovation can help solve some of the issues faced. Come and hear from senior leaders, Consultants, Occupational Therapists, and others from Cambridge University Hospitals, as well as representatives from Primary Care and those providing services in the community. We hope you will bring your expertise and ideas to help us solve some of the challenges faced together.

The event will take place on Tuesday, July 9 2019, 18:00 to 20:30 at Mills & Reeve, Botanic House, 98- 100 Hills Road, Cambridge CB2 1PH

Places are limited; to find out more and to book your place, contact Liz Brinsdon (Email / Phone 01223 216388)
