Leeds has a bold vision for digital health and care in our city and we’d like to share it with you! We’d also like to tell you how this fits with related work across Yorkshire and Humber. This event is for digital health and technology companies to get up to date with the latest on the city and regional plans and find out where your products and services might fit.

Chaired by Anne Cooper, Non Executive Director at Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, this special supplier-focused event is introduced by Alastair Cartwright, Director of Informatics at Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group, who will share the overall vision for the city. Lee Rickles, Yorkshire and Humber Care Record Programme Director, will share regional developments including a personal health record for citizens and will touch on themes such as open standards and the regional technology blueprint.

You will see examples of work with industry partners, collaborating with health and social care in the city. You will also hear about a whole host of local initiatives, including our Innovation Labs through the Smart Cities programme, ALL INN codesign with people with specific conditions, the DHAT research and innovation hub and Co>Space North.

There will be plenty of informal time for networking and to speak with senior health and social care leaders and decision makers. Come along and become part of our city’s vision for health and care services enabled by digital!
