Health and Social Care Council

The Council’s priorities are informed by techUK’s Ten Point Plan for Healthtech, a report which sets out recommendations for public sector stakeholders to accelerate the digitisation of the health and care sector. The Council is currently led by Andreas Haimboeck-Tichy, Shane Tickell, and Victoria Betton, and includes representatives from the following members:

Social Care Working Group

The Working Group acts a neutral forum for knowledge exchange across the supplier base and for public sector stakeholders to engage with the market. While identifying common challenges and solutions and offering the opportunity to leverage synergies to partner as often an ecosystem approach is needed to solve a problem.

Interoperability Working Group

The Interoperability Working Group exists to unleash the possibilities of joined up health and care data. As part of our ongoing programme of work, this group operates closely with organisations such as NHSX, NHS Digital, INTEROPen and the PRSB to ensure that industry is represented when interoperability standards are discussed or being implemented.

Healthcare Group

techUK members can keep in touch or get involved in our work by joining this group, and stay up to date with the latest events and opportunities in the health programme.
