NHS Digital and techUK have announced a strategic partnership.

Launched at the E-health week event earlier this month, the news was confirmed by NHS Digital’s Director of Digital Transformation, Beverley Bryant and techUK’s Chief Executive, Julian David.

Opening the event, Bryant stated that: “The partnership with techUK will ensure that industry can begin to gear up for all the potential opportunities and inform NHS Digital’s strategy”.

David added: “Delivering the NHS’s Paperless 2020 agenda will be no mean feat. It is an ambitious programme with huge potential to transform the NHS, and with it the lives of everyone in the country. Delivering the agenda will require the true collaboration of many actors, and the UK tech sector is central to its success.”
