Event Information

NHS Digital is supporting the mandatory roll out of free WiFi access for patients and staff, in all NHS GP Practices by 31st December 2017 and hospitals and secondary care in 2018. A secure, stable and reliable WiFi capability will allow health and care professionals to deliver patient care more easily and to use mobile devices as part of their care delivery, while patients and the public will be able to download health apps, browse the internet and look up health and care information.

NHS delegates are invited to attend this one day programme of presentations, panel discussions and interactive dialogue. Project leads and IT leads in Clinical Commissioning Groups can expect to find out more about implementing NHS WiFi and the standards and requirements that they must meet to roll out WiFi.

This conference will benefit those that have yet to implement WiFi as well as those who have already started the process; delegates will have the opportunity to attend sessions hosted by NHS England and NHS Digital, engage with solution providers and network with their peers from across the NHS.

Given the tight timescales involved for both the programme and the conference we strongly advise that you book your free place today.

Conference Agenda

Tuesday 18th July 2017, Cloth Hall Court, Quebec Street, Leeds LS1 2HA

09:30 – 1050 Plenary

The Speakers

Chair, Phil Gibson, Chair, Innopsis

David Corbett, NHS WiFi Programme Director, NHS Digital

Rommel Lao, Digital Primary Care (GPIT) Programme Lead/SME, NHS England
NHS England will give an overview on how the Wi-Fi programme fits in its strategic ambitions of delivering successful and sustainable improvements in care across the NHS and for primary care in particular. The roles and responsibilities of local, regional and national organisations, including GP IT delivery partners, will be pivotal in delivering these ambitions. Together with NHS Digital, an update on the current position will be presented to lay the foundation in meeting the challenge of deploying the service by December 2017 in all GP sites.

Andy Smith, Programme Manager, Health Digital Services, NHS Digital

All CCGs in England have now been allocated funding to rollout Wi-Fi in GP practices by December 2017. NHS Digital will share any best practice models and lessons learned from the 20 CCGs who acted as early adopters and successfully procured and implemented Wi-Fi by March 2017.
The session will provide detail on the purpose, requirement and procurement of Wi-Fi systems in primary care and outline the support available to enable the remaining 90% of CCGs to deliver and have working Wi-Fi across GP surgeries by the end of December 2017.
Paul Weiser, Category Manager, Technology Aggregation, Crown Commercial Service

Unlocking the potential of NHS WiFi

Following a 30 minute refreshment break the day continues with a series of presentations on subjects such as, but not limited to:

11:15 Practice WiFi Case Study – delivering for our customers
A look at a recent NHS WiFi project implementing across a CCGs member practices, exploring the challenges and successes in delivering NHS WiFi at scale, sharing learnings, outcomes and best practice from both Egton’s and the customer’s perspective.

Graham Brown, Marketing Manager, Egton
NHS representative tbc

11:40 Harnessing the power of WiFi to improve the patient experience
Since its creation more than 70 years ago the NHS has been at the forefront of cutting-edge medical technology. The opportunity to connect patients, visitors and staff to free WiFi hotspots is another step on that journey to enhance ‘patient experience’ and improve medical care. We will look at the landscape of challenges and identify solutions to the provision of fast,secure and scalable WiFi connectivity across a distributed environment. We will also explore how to create repeatable deployments to maximise efficiency and reduce sost of delivery across the NHS.

Richard Beeston, Product Director Networking, Daisy Group

12:05 WiFi – what will it really change for the NHS?
At O2 we have long used O2 WiFi to supplement our cellular network, with our WiFi service always being 100% free for end users. This model works perfectly in the NHS environment and our customers talk to us regularly about public access WiFi, clinician WiFi, or a mixture of the two. But what will pervasive WiFi really change for the NHS?

Alex will talk about some of the additional services that O2 sees as being particularly relevant in the NHS setting:

– Making a success of EPR impementation
– Improving patient flow to enhance A&E performance
– Tracking assets, staff and patients
– How big data can help the NHS better understand population behaviour and impact
