Driving forward the digital transformation of health and social care
Who are we?
We are a diverse team with a range of skills and expertise, including clinicians, technologists, policy experts, developers, data scientists and project managers.
We report directly to the Secretary of State and the Chief Executive of NHS England and NHS Improvement. We are funded through existing budgets.
What do we do?
NHSX is leading the largest digital health and social care transformation programme in the world. With an investment of more than £1 billion pounds a year nationally and a significant additional spend locally, NHSX has been created to give staff and citizens the technology they need.
We have set ourselves five missions, which are focused on how we can make things better for patients and staff. These are:
Reduce the burden on our workforce, so they can focus on delivering care;
Give people the tools to access information and services directly, so they can best take charge of their own health and care;
Ensure information about people’s health and care can be safely accessed, wherever it is needed;
Aid the improvement of safety across health and care systems; and
Improve health and care productivity with digital technology.
