Health & Social Care Newsletter | Your Vote Counts: Health & Social Care Council

Voting is now open for the Health and Social Care Council. We have 17 experienced candidates up for election and seven places available on the Council. Thank you in advance for your careful consideration of the new leaders who will shape the Health and Social Care programme at techUK. Voting closes on 17 November.

This month we hosted an Industry Briefings with NHS Digital in London and Leeds, an Industry Engagement on NHS Digital’s GP IT Futures Programme, and at ehi LIVE we launched our investigation into how tech can help avoid the winter crisis. This was followed by our aptly timed FHIR Works event on interoperability last Friday.

Next week we are hosting our Annual Health and Social Care Industry Dinner on Wednesday 15 November in Central London. You’ll hear from Matthew Swindells, Lord O'Shaughnessy, Prof. Rachel Dunscombe, and senior execs from NHS England, NHS Digital and other public bodies. It’s an excellent networking opportunity with limited tickets remaining.

Please get in touch with the team and let us know if there are topics you'd like us to include, leave out, or talk about in our newsletters. We really do like feedback!
