Annual General Meeting 2019

The Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday 10th July 2019.
The Guest Speaker: Matthew Gould (CEO for NHSx) who will address the topic:

“NHSX – what we’re trying to do, why we’re trying to do it, and what we can learn from Israel”.

NHSx is a new body set up to ensure that staff and patients have the technology they need.  Matthew  has said his priorities are to reduce the burden on clinicians, to put services and information into the hands of citizens, and to ensure that clinicians can safely access patient data from wherever they are in the system.

For the past 3 years, he has been the Government’s Director-General for Digital and Media Policy.   Before that he was British Ambassador to Israel, where he set up the UK-Israel Tech Hub, and the UK Government’s Director of Cyber Security.  As well as Israel, he has done postings in Tehran, Islamabad, Washington and Manila.

Matthew is married with two daughters.  He is a keen but incompetent show-jumper.
