Our annual Let’s Talk Research Conference:  THE TIME IS NOW is back!!!!

Thursday 25th June 2020, The Monastery, Gorton

Let’s Talk Research: The Time is Now celebrates the exemplary work of early career NHS researchers that is laying the foundations for the methods and practices of the future and asks us to consider what we want research and innovation in the NHS to look like in 2050 and beyond.

The conference venue, The Monastery, Gorton, is a part of the long history of monastic medicine and the Franciscan focus on giving care to the poor. The mix of breathtaking Gothic architecture and modern renovations reminds us that the present is built on deep foundations and strong traditions and invites us to take a long view of the future of research and innovation in healthcare.

We build tomorrow today. The future is now!

The jam-packed day aims to deliver a programme of creative content and speakers to stretch the imagination of attendees, giving them inspiration and support on how to challenge the barriers of communicating their research in innovative ways.  Challenging them to do things differently in an environment where research truly matters.
