There are limited spaces available, so if you would like to attend this excellent event, visit www.moray.ac.uk and complete the online booking form.
Health-e-space is an ongoing development and is seen as a partnership between the public, relevant scientists, the NHS, Industry, Highlands & Islands Enterprise, Moray Council, Moray College, a number of universities, voluntary organisations, Scottish Health Innovations Ltd, and the Moray Community Health and Social Care Partnership.
