Listen: the challenge of the NHS’s digitally led future

19th July 2021
Posted by Aston Avery

The Health and Care Bill introduced to parliament last week set out obligations to promote innovation in the provision of health services. If passed, it’ll modernise the legal framework to make the health system fit for the future. With people at the heart of these changes what skills are going to enable this modernisation to happen?

We’ve been witness to the power of data to save lives during the greatest public health emergency that this country has tackled for generations, and the government’s recent 10 year Life Sciences investment announcement clearly points to the desire to accelerate investment in these life-saving innovations and drive towards a more digitally led, next generation NHS.

FastFutures is the digital business skills and mentoring programme launched to tackle some of the skills gaps in young people aged 18 and 24. Health Education England and its partner NHS bodies, including NHSX, are among the founding partners (alongside BT, AstraZeneca, Octopus energy, and others) of FastFutures.

Aston spoke to Matthew Ansbro, managing director at Avado FastFutures.
