Chris Green backs medical technology report

Bolton West MP Chris Green has given his backing to a new report showing how medical technology can save the NHS money, as well as transform patients’ lives.

The report by the Medical Technology Group was unveiled at a special reception at the Houses of Parliament during Medical Technology


It reveals how taxpayers could be saved vast sums of money if the NHS consistently used just a handful of technology devices. It also illustrates how using technology devices, such as implantable defibrillators, gets patients back to work quickly to create both social and economic benefits for families and communities.

Chris said: “Medical technology can transform people’s lives, as well as save the NHS money, which is why I was pleased to give my backing to this report.

“I hope that by raising awareness of the social and economic benefits of these devices, that Medical Technology Week will encourage the NHS in Bolton West and across the country to improve access to these lifesaving and life enhancing devices for patients.”
