Workshop One: Building the digital workforce of the future
The challenge of achieving a health and care workforce with the skills required to make maximum use of digital tools and data have long been identified. There have been notable successes, such as the NHS Digital Academy, but a step-change is still required to ensure that the entire workforce becomes equipped with the range of skills, many of them new, required to provide digital-first services. This workshop will explore what is required to accelerate and sustain the development of a highly digitally skilled NHS workforce.

In a technology sector that is notoriously fond of hype how can digital leaders plans for the future and surf these tsunamis of change.
