DTL Conference 2024 a huge success!

Thank you to everyone that attended the DTL Showcase Conference 2024 yesterday at the Bet365 Stadium, Staffordshire - many battling a number of road closures and diversions to make it to the venue!

We had a fantastic day and hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did! It was amazing to have so many Digital and Transformation Leads attend from across England, as well as seeing PCN and primary care colleagues as well.

We had excellent and insightful presentations in the main room from:

Mike Pyrah who spoke about Understanding The New IT Procurement Frameworks and How They Will Work for Practices and PCNs;

Dr Matt Kearney and Laura Boyd from UCL Partners who spoke about CVDACTION: Turning Data Into Action To Prevent Heart Attacks and Strokes At Scale;

Alison Yates who introduced and provided an overview and demonstration of the training website How2 (a free resource available to all NHS staff); and

Dr Clare Sieber Co-CEO, The Well-Led Practice who spoke about Managing Conflict in PCNs’

We also held an engaging and insightful Q&A session before lunch-we could have extended this session even longer but the excellent lunch was starting to cool!

The conference included a series of break-out rooms during the day which were well attended.
