About us

Digital Health Virtual Summer School returns as a virtual event on 15-16 July, 2021 back at a key moment in the development of digitally-enabled health and care.

Dedicated to CCIOs/CIOs/CNIOs, together with all current and aspiring digital health leaders, Summer School is the most popular and friendly NHS IT leadership event of the year.

Virtual Summer School will once again provide two-days of rewarding education, networking and best practice exchange, providing you with a unique opportunity to learn from the very best digital health leaders from across the UK and internationally.

After going virtual and international in 2020 we’ll be keeping the best of online and will also live-stream key sessions and look forward to welcoming speakers and delegates from around the World.

Virtual Summer School 2021 promises the most interesting agenda ever. Whether you are coming for the first time or are a regular you will be made very welcome and learn a huge amount from your peers.

Virtual Summer School 2021 topics will include: ”Where next for digital in health?” “How can digital gains won during Covid-19 now be secured?” and “How can digital leaders now harness the tectonic shift in culture and attitudes to be bolder and go further and faster?”

With an educational programme that spans keynote speakers, case studies, panel discussions, workshops and masterclasses – as well as great networking and a full social programme get set for a packed two days. All sessions will be fully CPD accredited.
