Outgoing NHS director for patients and information Tim Kelsey will speak for the last time in his current role to healthcare technology leaders at EHI Live, the UK’s largest digital health event.

As one of the keynote speakers, Kelsey will open the conference, and share his final thoughts on how the NHS can build on the vision to harness the power of information to support health and care services. In December, Kelsey plans to take a new job in Australia to become commercial director of Telstra.

A driving force behind a revitalised approach to health technology within the NHS, Kelsey is closely associated with national policy initiatives such as the National Information Board’s Personalising health and care 2020 framework, and the controversial Care.data scheme.

The free-to-attend event, now run by Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, will take place at the NEC Hall 1, Birmingham on 3rd and 4th November 2015, and is considered one of the most important and best-attended events in the UK eHealth calendar.
