On 10th October we took Healthcare Leader Forum to Birmingham for two concurrent conferences – one on Digital Solutions, and one on Primary Care Sustainability.

Produced by the team behind Healthcare Leader, the aim of these conferences was to provide an environment where senior healthcare professionals from the Midlands & the East region could meet with experts and their peers for in-depth discussions about Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships and what these plans mean for their local health community.

Highlights included:

  • A session from Cleveland Henry, Programme Director, Digital Collaboration Service, NHS Digital on achieving a paperless NHS
  • A talk on the role of communities in making primary care sustainable from Merron Simpson, Chief Executive, New NHS Alliance and Amelia Bilson, Chair, Middleport Matters
  • And presentation from Sovani Milind, Respiratory Medicine Hon Consultant and Assistant Professor DM, FRCP, EDIC, Nottingham University Hospitals on telehealth

With the overall event being rated more than 4.5/5 by our attendees, find out what they thought of the day:
