Our AGM is an important opportunity to influence plans for future talks and events and also to JOIN THE COMMITTEE. As usual, we are particularly keen to recruit new members from an industrial background. If you wish to join us please COME EARLY and make yourself known to Jon Tyler, Norman Bain or Peter Gray during the coffee period from 6 pm.


Ubiquitous technology underpins healthcare in Scotland. Increasingly robotics is being adopted for medicines management, surgical procedures, hospital logistics and even care of the elderly in their own homes. How far can we or should we go in removing the human touch?
