With the support of the University of Essex, join us to hear from NHS England and NHS Digital experts on:

How digital solution providers can best engage the NHS:

Jasbinder Sandhu, Head of Digital Technology Midlands and Les Sweetman, Head of Digital Technology East, NHS England, will focus on:

  • An overview of the NHS structure for digital suppliers: who buys what;
  • NHS strategy for digital and how you can get involved;
  • How trusts buy digital technologies: NHS GP procurements and other frameworks;
  • What a trust looks for in a solution, its provider and commercial model;
  • National and trust interoperability requirements for digital health providers.
