Event description

Description

One HealthTech London's Lunchtime Sessions are back, this time hosted by our pals of all things data science at the Alan Turing Institute.

This series aims to showcase the tip top folks working to make healthtech policy the best it can be, whilst also lifting the lids on their personal career journeys, current projects and future hopes... but without all the policy guff (keepin' it real folks).

The sessions will be 1 hour long in a "fireside chat" format, so perfect for you to nip out in your lunch break. As ever, these events are BYOL (Bring Your Own Lunch), so grab your sarnie and coffee and spend a fun and informative lunch break.

In this session we have the wonderful Emma Doyle (Head of Data Policy, NHS England) Nada Al-Hadithy (National Medical Director's Clinical Leadership Fellow, Strategy Unit, DHSC) and Renate Samson (Senior Policy Advisor, Open Data Institute) who will be focussing on data transparency and open practices across the public sector, as well as their weird and wonderful career paths of course!

Our MC for this event will be Sarah Deeny, Assistant Director of Data Analytics at the Health Foundation

Logistics
- The Alan Turing Institute can be found on the 1st floor of the British Library. Head in through the main reception and head right and up two flights of stairs. On arrival, you should see a bright sign saying "Alan Turing Institute" as well as an Enigma machine (which is VERY cool)
- At times there can be BIG queues to get into the British Library due to bag checks. Make sure you leave an extra 10 minutes to get through security, or even better, don't bring a bag at all and walk straight through

Accessibility

We’ve been awarded a Fairer Tech grant from doteveryone to make our events more accessible (woop woop!). If for any reason there are barriers to engaging in the community we invite anyone to apply for up to £30* per person per event to cover personal costs to improve this. The money can cover just about anything, including but not limited to child/other care, taxis if you’re not able-bodied, trains if you live out in the countryside, a live captioner, recording of the event or loss of earnings if you have a side job along your studies. Who are we to judge?! If you feel it’s a barrier, we agree too.

Simply fill out this VERY SHORT form and we’ll confirm the expense :-)

Nada's bio

I love people and having chats about health and social equality. I believe that digital is a way of moving the age old problems of the social determinants of health, race inequality and gender discrimination forward. It’s also a way of reducing the environmental impact of the NHS, with teleconsultations, AI and beyond. I am a mum, a plastic surgery trainee, and have taken time out of clinical practice to be surrounded by lovely National Medical Director’s clinical leadership fellows and to work in the DHSC. I am very keen on open working practices an Open Leader with Mozilla.

Renate's bio

Following a career in television production, making documentaries for the BBC, Sky and other international broadcasters, Renate moved into politics in 2010 working as Chief of Staff to a senior politician focusing on civil liberties, data and human rights. After five years in Parliament, Renate became CEO of a non-governmental organisation exposing the rise of data surveillance and encouraging improved online privacy and security. She established and led campaigns seeking to challenge and improve UK legislation including the Investigatory Powers Act, Digital Economy Act and the rise in facial biometrics and facial recognition technologies. Working alongside other non-governmental organisations she was involved in a successful legal challenge undertaken at the European Court of Human Rights. Renate has specific expertise and knowledge in privacy, security, biometrics, data rights, digital citizenry and digital literacy; topics she has regularly written and spoken about on television, radio and in the press.

Sarah's bio

Sarah Deeny is Assistant Director of Data Analytics at the Health Foundation where she leads a team using novel analytics and linked data to gain insights into quality of health and care. As well as all the cool new data stuff, right now she’s thinking a lot about how we make health analytics more open and collaborative, and how we get patients and the public involved in a meaningful way. Sarah joined the Health Foundation from Public Health England, where she used mathematical models and data linkage to generate insights to inform national policy on antimicrobial resistance and healthcare associated infections
