The Digital Responses to Covid-19 Briefing and Q&A Webinars, each Tuesday feature senior leaders from NHSX, NHS Digital and other agencies leading nationally on digital responses to the Covid-19 public health emergency.

The weekly Briefing and Q&A webinars provide a unique opportunity for local NHS IT leaders to directly put their questions to national leaders, share local experiences and identify current obstacles and blockers.

Dr Simon Eccles, National CCIO and Deputy CEO at NHSX, returns to the hot seat on Tuesday, 21 April, for the latest edition of the Digital Responses to Covid-19 briefing and Q&A webinar series. Simon will again provide attendees with a briefing on the latest work being led by NHSX to help the NHS respond to Covid-19, followed by a Q&A session. The webinar will cover the following:

  • Testing Programme
  • Supporting remote consultations
  • Enabling clinicians to work from home

This is your chance to put your questions directly to Simon, share local experiences, make suggestions and highlight local barriers and issues.

Members of Digital Health Networks can put their questions to Simon on the Networks’ online community in advance of the webinars or post them live during the webinar.

The questions, suggestions and responses on each session will be collated and shared back with Network members and presenters.
