The DigitalHealth.London Digital Pioneer Fellowship supports around 30 change makers, employed by NHS organisations in London and the South East, to design and lead transformation projects underpinned by digital innovation.
The 12-month programme provides the Fellows with the opportunity to be part of an action focused learning community, focused on accelerating the pace of digital transformation within their respective NHS organisations. The individuals taking part have access to a number of workshops, resources and events throughout the year to share challenges and experiences, learn from experts and collaborate to co-design solutions.
They will hear from and be given the opportunity to ask questions of leading sector experts during taught modules on subjects ranging from change management and business case development to agile delivery and service improvement. Fellows will also be able to work with a mentor and be grouped into action learning sets with other Fellows who are working in similar environments on digital transformation projects.
The Digital Pioneer Fellowship is one of DigitalHealth.London’s flagship programmes. The Digital Pioneer Fellowship is delivered by DigitalHealth.London. DigitalHealth.London is a partnership programme delivered by Medcity and London’s three Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) – UCLPartners, Imperial College Health Partners and the Health Innovation Network. It is supported by NHS England (London) and the Mayor’s Office.
“I didn’t feel I was senior enough to apply to the Fellowship programme, but I attended the showcase event and my line manager encouraged me to apply… The programme, along with my experiences, and the amazing people I met, helped me understand my own personal interests and aspirations. My big ambition now is to help those in developing countries or vulnerable communities, access skills to benefit from digital health.”
