About us

Digital Health’s Summer Schools is the most popular and prestigious health IT leadership event of the year, offering NHS digital leaders two-days of relaxed networking, collaboration and education in which they can learn from their peers in the UK and internationally.

Covid-19 means we’ve had to take the Summer School virtual in 2020, and we will be using digital to deliver a blend of video case studies, live discussions and online networking and education sessions.

Covid-19 also provides the focus for the 2020 Summer Schools, which will explore UK and international digital responses to the pandemic. We are using the virtual format to build international participation with dedicated early morning sessions on the programme on response in Australia and New Zealand.

The Virtual Summer Schools is organised by Digital Health the leading publisher, intelligence provider, host Digital Health Networks the UK’s largest health IT community, and organiser of Digital Health Rewired the leading trade show in the sector. Summer Schools is free to all members of Digital Health Networks and partners.
