Real-time Digital Medicine

On Monday 22nd June 2009, the local Heartlink Support Group in Tameside & Glossop invited Dr Hannan to come and talk about how Haughton Thornley Medical Centres has enabled patients to benefit from Real-time Digital Medicine and how patients like themselves may benefit from this too.
