“We were lucky enough to join the December 2019 induction of the launchpad, and have benefitted from a number of in depth discussions with leads from across the NHS, from IG to Digital, which was all super helpful in guiding us towards our launch. Since then, we’ve been in keeping in touch with others in our cohort to ask & answer questions as we all move forwards together.”
