  • building board business cases for digital transformation
  • building high performing digital teams
  • delivery of integrated care

Networking and discussion will be at the heart of the Summit with panel debates, interactive roundtables and workshops together with national keynotes.

The exclusive audience will include newly elected representatives of the Health CIO, CCIO and CNIO Networks, NHS CEOs national policy leaders, coming together to share knowledge and network face-to-face.   Event partners include NHS Digital, NHS Providers and NHSX.
