Prime Minister Erna Solberg has invited the prime ministers of the Nordic and Baltic countries and the UK to discuss the role of health technology in health services in the future at this year’s Northern Future Forum. The main aim of the meeting will be to discuss common challenges, share good, innovative solutions, and learn from one another.
‘We all face challenges relating to an aging population and the pressure this puts on the welfare state. We need to develop sustainable health services for the future and make the best possible use of the opportunities new technology offers. I look forward to sharing knowledge and ideas about these issues with the prime ministers of the UK and the Nordic and Baltic countries,’ says Mrs Solberg.
