For our final live event of 2023, Firestarters is investigating if artificial intelligence can save our crumbling NHS.

Following a host of successful events in 2023, Firestarters is back for the final event of the year. The event will explore the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a force for social good within the NHS and the wider healthcare industry. Firestarters is proud to be bringing together some of the brightest minds to facilitate our most controversial question yet…can AI save the NHS?

In true Firestarters style, we’ll be bringing together the city region’s healthcare professionals and a diverse audience from various sectors to explore the question. Through the event, we’ll investigate whether harnessing the power of AI will allow the healthcare industry to improve the nation’s health, develop NHS processes and create a more efficient and sustainable future. Through collaboration and meaningful conversations, we’re bringing our community of changemakers together to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of AI
  • Discover how their health can be improved by its use in the current NHS landscape
  • Explore what work is currently being done by the city region’s leading innovators
