NHS-HE Forum June 2019

10 May 2019 at 4:59pm
Tuesday, June 4, 2019 - 11:00
the Woburn House Conference Centre, 20-24 Tavistock Square, London WC1H 9HQ.

I’m delighted to announce that the next NHS-HE Forum on 4th June 2019 10.30 – 15.30 (coffee from 10) will include the speakers below. Registration is still open at  and the venue is the Woburn House Conference Centre, 20-24 Tavistock Square, London WC1H 9HQ.

  • Jon Hoeksma, chief executive and editor of Digital Health which combines independent news, intelligence data and leadership networks (e.g. the CCIO and CIO networks) for the UK health IT sector. Jon is very well placed to give an update on recent digital health developments and trends
  • Prof Joe McDonald, Practising Consultant Psychiatrist, Director of Connected Health Cities North East and North Cumbria (The Great North Care Record),

CCIO of Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Trust & Chairman of the Chief Clinical Information Officers Leaders Network. Joe will be talking about the Great North Care Record as an example of a Local Health and Care Record Exemplar (LHCRE) project and some of the particular features of their approach (“secret of consent is to get consent”).

  • James Holman, Research Environment Delivery Programme Lead, Genomics England.  James will be talking about the research environment, the considerations in setting it up and plans for the future.
  • Natalie Lafferty, Assistant Director LLC and Head of the Centre for Technology and Innovation in Learning at the University of Dundee. Natalie is a long-time friend and significant contributor to the NHS-HE Forum and will be revisiting some of her earlier work on access to modern software tools for learning and a view on emerging trends and challenges.

At one point I had hoped for a Health Data Research UK update but as you may have seen the process is now open for applications for Digital Innovation Hubs with a closing date for bids of 2nd July and they won’t be doing general updates before then, but hopefully they can do that at the next Forum in November.

I do hope you can make it to the Forum.
