Following the first meeting of Matt Hancock’s Healthtech Advisory Board, Digital Health News wants to know your thoughts on its membership.
According to the Department for Health and Social Care, the board is intended to “help guide the government on its mission to overhaul technology and IT in health and social care”.
The secretary of state for health and social care posted a picture of its membership earlier this week following its initial meeting.
But some Digital Health News readers, along with commentators on social media, have criticised the lack of practising clinicians on the board.
So we want your views: should there be more of a clinical presence on Hancock’s advisory board? You can vote below and we will reveal the results next week.
