12th March, 2019
An ever increasing ageing population, continued improvements in drug treatment and increasing expectations of healthcare continues to drive demand for healthcare services.
This demand is growing much faster than supply and is not helped by a shortage of HCPs, and ineffective use of resources.
We recently attended an inspiring conference in London which focused on how digital enabled technology is starting to provide solutions that bridge the gap between demand and supply.
What emerged for us was 7 key themes:
- Making healthcare more accessible
- The emergence of patient as consumer
- Blending human and technology intervention
- Open health records
- Advances in surgical outcomes
- The future of mental health care
- Digitization of the UK National Health Service (NHS)
These all have the potential to transform the future world of healthcare.

It’s clear that ways of working and travel aren’t going to go back to where they were anytime soon, and more likely never. So there’s a growing realisation that the ‘plasters’ we all put in place to make things work since March need to become more permanent solutions if we’re going to have the impact and results we need.
Where will consumers buy their (over-the-counter) drugs in future?
An unprecedented change is currently taking place in the sale of pharmaceutical products, pointing to the influence of new competition with the existing pharmacy structure.
