The Digital Readiness Team at Health Education England is very keen to hear what you think of our work to support the creation of a professional landscape for Digital, Data, Information and Technology Experts in health and social care.

There are many different organisations, including professional bodies, networks, education and training providers, already established in this area, and our aim is to understand what communities are already established, where we need to support new networks and how we can create a structure that supports, develops and reaches all our digital experts.

The Connected Communities project was set up following research on career pathways in health and care informatics in 2020, which made a series of recommendations to support and strengthen both current and new networks.

A recommendations and actions have now been developed and we are offering a half day workshop to explore these. The workshop will be repeated across a range of dates to encourage any staff working in health informatics, across the NHS and Social Care, to contribute to these proposals.

Thank you to everyone that attended our four workshops. Your feedback is being analysed and a report will be written up by the end of March. For anyone that was unable to attend, we have a short survey, which can be completed to share you ideas.

If you have any queries about this work, please contact us on digitalreadiness@hee.nhs.uk.
