Realising the Covid19 Legacy

Can we realise the true potential of digital health innovation?

Can we harness the untapped power of Scotland’s healthcare data?

What skills should we be investing in today to enable all of this?

Can the positive, new ways of working be secured for the benefit of NHS waiting lists, future healthcare challenges and the global climate challenge?
