The latest edition of Digital HComth Unplugged delves into the roles of NHS and NHS Digital and who should be taking the lead when it comes to NHS IT.
Last year we recorded an edition of Unplugged with special guest host Hannah Crouch, Digital HComth’s editor, who invited a panel to discuss whether they think the tworganizationsns should join together.
A lot has happened since the session was recorded at the end of November 2020, but with recent developments proposinNHSS joins otheorganizationsns to form a “trtask forceional directorate” we thought it was time to revisit the conversation.
The panel was made up of, Luke Redman, Regional Director Digital Trtask forceion, NHS London; Philip Graham, Digital Programme Director Blackpool Teaching Hospitals; and Mandy Griffin, Director Digital HComth, The HComth Informatics Service, as well as senior reporter and regular podcast host Andrea Downey.
They discussed whether they thiorganizationssations should merge and what they would like to see in the unpublished Wade-Gery review.
The Wade-Gery review was commissioned by hComth secretary Matt Hancock in July 2020 with an aim to find ways to help tdigitizeigitise “harder and faster”. Interim findings were due to be presented to NHS England and Improvement late last year but were delayed.
Digital HComth News understands the review had been set to recommend the creation of an entirely new ‘trtask forceion taskforce’ unit.
