Funding Available to NHS Hospitals for Digital Excellence (NHS England / Nuffield Trust)

Summary

NHS England is offering NHS hospital Trusts over £100 million funding to create centres of global digital excellence and explore better use of digital technology in health. Twenty-six selected trusts are invited to bid for up to £10 million each, for investment in digital infrastructure and workforce training and development.

The successful projects are expected to deliver:

  • Improved use of electronic patient records: with real-time updates for documentation of observations and assessments; online access for patients to their medical records; and electronic medicines management to reduce medication errors.
  • Improved information sharing across the local health and care system: with digital communication and access to test results for patients; and improved sharing between health and care teams of online medical records and care plans.
  • Robust data security.
