Technology has an important role to play in our society and our economy. It enables us to connect with family, friends and work colleagues, alongside making online purchases such as food. The COVID-19 pandemic has seen the rise of healthcare technology in supporting individuals with ordering their prescriptions online and having them delivered to their doorstep, consulting with their GP via video calls and the much under fire NHS track and trace app.
