techUK has launched a Life Sciences workstream, bringing together members actively working in drug discovery, digital therapeutics, data and AI, or those interested in moving into this space. As the Life Sciences sector looks to introduce digital health technologies into its portfolio, techUK are shaping the conversation.
techUK is working with NHS England to set up a virtual roundtable for suppliers to provide feedback to help policymakers understand how the Digital Health Technologies policy framework is impacting industry. A survey has been issued to understand what the landscape is currently like for getting a product to market in the NHS and it can be accessed here. We would strongly encourage you to complete it before joining this discussion. NHS England would like to review answers from the survey and provide a response to any questions you might have at the roundtable in August.
Please note that technologies in scope of this work fall into Tier C of the NICE Evidence Standards Framework (suppliers of products (apps / wearables) that are patient facing and have a diagnostic / treatment/ management function). Products that are of a lifestyle / wellbeing management nature wouldn't be in scope of the policy framework.
We will be joined on the day by:
- Rebecca Parkin, Senior Tech Policy Manager, NHS Transformation Directorate, Department of Health and Social Care
- Peter Williams, Deputy Director of Strategy, Tech Policy and Implementation, NHS Transformation Directorate, Department of Health and Social Care.
Any questions, please get in touch with the team.

With health and care systems around the globe facing increasing pressures, the use of digital technology has never been more important. Supporting a vibrant ecosystem with the potential to become a world leader, techUK is helping its members navigate the complex space of digital health and care in the UK and ensure our NHS is prepared for the challenges of the future.
The Interoperability Working Group will work towards achieving the vision set out in NHS England’s 2022 draft standards and interoperability strategy. The group will aim to encourage the adoption of open standards and fluidity of data whilst recognising the commercial needs of members. It will also focus on demonstrating the value of interoperability to NHS senior management and improving the abilities of SMEs to implement interoperability standards.
