The Get Physical events were highly rated by delegates who say they will now take action in their own workplaces as a result.

More than 220 managers in the public and private sectors attended the roadshows held at Janssen/Johnson & Johnson, High Wycombe; Vodafone, Newbury; and BMW, Oxford, in November.           Read more here >

New report highlights digital assets

A report commissioned last year by the Oxford AHSN, Oxford University and Oxford University Innovation to explore the scope and potential of digital health research and related commercial activity in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes, Bedford and Oxfordshire has now been published. The report – 'Digital health in Oxford and the wider Thames Valley region' – can be found here. It concludes that the Oxford AHSN region is a strong digital cluster where healthcare can be improved through new technologies and better uses of existing technologies. The Oxford AHSN, in partnership with NHS trusts and universities, is well placed to lead region-wide digital development leading to better health and wealth.
