Following a recent Department of Trades and Industry “Global Watch Mission” to Japan, which was based around “Technology and the Delivery of Care for the Elderly” and co-ordinated by Sheffield-based company Medilink (Yorkshire and Humber) Ltd, a UK seminar was held to disseminate its findings.

The London seminar also highlighted synergies between Japanese and UK skills and experiences, and the potential for collaboration between the two countries.
