Who is the Digital Pioneer Fellowship for?
The programme is aimed at NHS healthcare professionals currently employed at any level by an NHS organisation in London or the South East, from a range of NHS disciplines including doctors, nurses, Allied Health Professionals, projects managers and IT staff. It is for individuals who are currently leading or significantly involved in delivering a digital transformation project within their organisation.
The Digital Pioneer Fellowship programme is funded through sponsorship from Boehringer Ingelheim Ltd (BI).

- An action focused learning community where Fellows are grouped into action learning sets to support problem solving.
- The learning days include a number of workshops and expert-led sessions on topics from design thinking and evaluation, to change management and strategic influencing.
- Each Fellow benefits from quarterly 1:1 mentorship with an expert.
