They’ll be joined by:

  • Rosemary Kay, director, eHealth Cluster Ltd;
  • Declan Hadley, digital health lead, Healthier Lancashire;
  • Louise Rogerson,  director of operations, Intelesant;
  • Dave Fletcher, founder and CEO, White October;
  • Chris Chapman, digital ecosystems lead, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust;
  • Dr Mark Forrest – chair, ATACC Medical Advisory Group;
  • Dr Bayju Thakar, founder, Doctor Care Anywhere; and
