UK Healthcare Roundtable: tackling data challenges together – the journey to becoming a data driven and joined up trust


Technology is changing how we think about healthcare in the UK, including the NHS, ICS and other local health and care systems. However, there is no agreed approach to data within the NHS, so getting started on your data journey can sometimes be challenging.

During this session we will share concepts and best practice approaches to help your trust achieve efficiency and effectiveness of infrastructure to ensure better data sharing, improved collaboration, and knowledge transfer across different healthcare partners.

Hear from our special guest speaker, Vishnu Chandrabalan, General Surgeon from Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. He will discuss the benefits of data sharing, including how it strengthens collaboration to allow researchers become part of a larger and richer scientific community.

Wednesday 13th July 11:00am -12:00pm

  • Why data needs to be treated as a strategic asset and the cultural change required to prioritise data as a core asset across the NHS.
