Local Digital Health Research and Development Group

Bristol Health Partners convenes a Local Digital Health Research and Development Group, bringing together academics, NHS organisations and local authorities in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG).

The group aims to:

  • Create an inventory of health-related data sources in the region
  • Explore and improve how local data is used for research and service planning to meet the needs of patients and the local health and care system
  • Support academic and student informatics placements in the NHS and local authorities
  • Share knowledge about research priorities and activities in digital health and informatics
  • Support public communications and engagement around digital health and informatics
