NHS Grampian Innovation Hub and the National Robotarium are hosting a face-to-face event on Tuesday 23rd August at the Suttie Centre on our Foresterhill Health Campus to invite potential industry partners to explore how to use robotic technology to better carry out activities in NHS Scotland and beyond. 

This event will provide industry with opportunities to hear directly from frontline NHS staff about the nature of their challenges, arrange site visits where that is helpful and network with the view to creating consortia.

Colleagues in our domestic, catering, nursing and pharmacy services have helped us to generate examples of where robotic technology could help us become substantially more efficient, allowing our pressured staff to get on with other activities. We have some interesting use cases from meal plating and portioning in the kitchens, to cleaning at height, changing curtains, patient self-administration of drugs and dispensing controlled drugs on the wards.

We would now like to bring together our staff and industry to explore ways in which we can jointly develop and test prototype solutions. This may be an interesting opportunity for companies already working in healthcare but also others applying robotic technology solutions in different industrial areas.
