“Thank you to Cambridge Health Network for inviting me to speak at their event this week about #citizenengagement in healthcare and harnessing the power of #digitaltechnologies. Exciting times ahead with opportunities to develop the NHSApp, widen NHS collaborations, empower citizens, create agency and build clinical and analytical skills in our workforce.”

“Great session on digital transformation in the NHS this evening at Cambridge Health Network. And fantastic questions on what we can learn from the dating and betting industry!! Great to hear from Dr Penny Kechagioglou about engaging clinicians and patients in the design of technology and the work that IBM Consulting are doing on digital front door with Amazon Web Services (AWS) at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) NHS Trust

We enjoyed hosting Cambridge Health Network at DrDoctor HQ last night. Alive and on point discussion on citizen engagement. Could not have been more relevant to the problems we’ve been solving for the last 10 years. Loved the contributions.
