Digital Health Networks Regional events is a new monthly programme of regional best practice events for NHS IT leaders, focused on sharing digital best practice underway in a particular NHS region.

The new regional events series builds on the popularity of our Digital Responses to Covid-19 Webinar Series and best practice webinars and are designed to provide the opportunity for a wide range of NHS digital leaders to share local work and knowledge with others.

Each regional event will be extended 90-minute best practice webinars split into two sessions, that blend short 10-minute presentations and open discussions from CCIO/CIO/CNIO Network members with panel Q&A. Delivered over a lunchtime slot the ‘lunch and learn’ sessions will carry CPD accreditation and count towards members’ professional development.

The aim is to showcase and discuss best practice on digital health and data within a region of the English NHS. Presentations will be in the form of short pre-recorded videos from members or live presentations, accompanied by live audience Q&A, quick polls and audience interactivity tools

Digital Health Networks: Midlands will start the series on 18 August @ 12.30 – 14.00. Agenda is as follows:

Chair for both sessions: Ade Byrne

Session 1: NHSD CEO & Deputy CEO will join us as a follow-up to the Virtual Summer School where they provided an overview of NHSD’s work on C19. In this session, to broaden the focus beyond C19 alone, Deputy CEO Pete Rose (who joined NHSD in May) will share thoughts on NHSD’s work in operating national systems and services and the national cyber security agenda. Sarah and Pete will then take questions on their C19 work, their core live and cyber services or any other programs of work or areas of operation. This session is intended predominantly to be a discussion forum, not a presentation, so we welcome questions and comments from all parties.
