This bursary programme will cover the costs of 10 digital Nurses and Midwives attending Summer Schools 2024 and has been created to help identify, promote and support future digital Nursing and Midwifery leaders and future talent in the UK health informatics and digital health sector.

All applicants will be notified of the outcome by Friday 1 March 2024

The programme is open to nurses and midwives UK-wide and will include:

  • A place at the Digital Health Summer Schools, which includes two-days access to the event, accommodation, and an evening social.
  • A reception evening on 17 July 2024 (Summer Schools pre-event).
  • Dedicated sessions at Summer Schools 18-19 July 2024 for nursing and midwifery

My bursary allowed me to attend DHSS for the first time and I’m so glad I did. The agenda was full to the brim and choosing sessions was really tough. I met with people that have so far only been digitally enabled contacts and made so many connections that I’ve stayed in touch with.

This was my first Digital Health Summer School and it was a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded digital leaders, to network and share ideas. I left the Summer School feeling inspired, energised and excited.
