NHS Education for Scotland shortlisted for UK-wide tech award
A health board tasked with delivering education and training for NHS staff in Scotland has been shortlisted for a UK-wide healthcare technology award.
NHS Education for Scotland (NES), which is responsible for over 6,500 trainee healthcare professionals, is in the running for the Champion Award at next month’s AXA PPP Health Tech & You.
The health board has been nominated for work that includes the development of a new digital platform for use by trainers and trainees as well as a smartphone app which helps clinicians cut sepsis deaths in Scotland.
Christopher Wroath, NES Director of Digital Transformation, said: “We are committed to pushing the boundaries of technology to deliver education that enables excellence in health and care for the people of Scotland.”
The award is presented to an individual or organisation that does the most to champion uptake and adoption of healthcare technology in the UK. The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony in London on April 25.
