Symposium 17 JuneAs a member of HealthWatch you believe in evidence-based healthcare. But what evidence do we need to justify the introduction of new medical devices or implants? How can we make sure it is obtained and disseminated? How should the system be regulated?

Recent publicity has made it clear that implants such as surgical mesh and silicone breast implants are poorly evidenced and probably poorly regulated. How should HealthWatch respond? Where should we be pressing for action?

These are the topics of our free HealthWatch Symposium on 17th June 2019 in central London: Evidence, Healthcare and Medical Devices & Implants.

We have some top-flight invited speakers, but most of the afternoon will be based on group discussions – and we would like many members of HealthWatch to be part of those discussions.

Could you join us for this event, and help HealthWatch focus its attention where it will be most effective?
