Sara Nelson, the Programme Director of DigitalHealth.London, will be on the advisory board of Digital Health AI & Data 2023. In her capacity as Programme Director, she leads the DigitalHealth.London team, overseeing the organisation’s long-term strategy and developing the strategic vision for all offered programmes. This ensures that DigitalHealth.London remains at the forefront of digital innovation and empowers staff on the ground to drive change for patients and the public.
Sara was the first Senior Nurse for digital at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital in 2015, where she focused on dismantling barriers between technology and clinical/ward teams. She then became an NHS Navigator for the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator program in 2018 and eventually led the entire program as maternity cover, building on her understanding of innovators’ needs and how best to support the system. In 2021, Sara was appointed Deputy CNIO for NHSX (now NHS England). In this role, she assumed responsibilities for education, leadership strategy portfolios, and the development of leadership initiatives across national, regional, and local teams.
DigitalHealth.London connects NHS staff, digital health companies, and academics, equipping them to enhance the NHS and social care in London through digital technology. Their four programmes provide tailored advice, mentoring, education, peer networking, brand awareness, and partnership opportunities to digital health leaders who are addressing the most significant challenges faced by patients, NHS, and Social Care staff.
DigitalHealth.London is delivered by the Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) for South London, through the Health Innovation Network (HIN), hosted by Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation Trust. The AHSNs were established by NHS England in 2013 and were re-licensed in April 2018 to operate as the key innovation arm of the NHS.
Join us on 30-31 October at London’s Business Design Centre to be a part of key discussions that will impact the future of nursing in the NHS.
