Last year, Combined Healthcare was named as one of the first NHS trusts to join NHSX’s ‘Digital Aspirant’ (DA) programme and we are proud that we have been highlighted as a case study by NHSX on the strategy to digitise, connect and transform health and care.

NHSX has published a set of guidelines for digitised healthcare, to support ICSs and individual health and care organisations to transform services for patients. These key areas of work are called What Good Looks Like, Who Pays for What, and Unified Tech Fund.
- What Good Looks Like describes the common foundation that should be in place across the NHS, and includes clear success measures that organisations and systems should aim to reach.
- Who Pays For What sets out a proposal for where the cost of digital transformation should fall.
- This year, NHSX are consolidating multiple existing national funding pots into a single Unified Tech Fund. A prospectus and application process have been launched.
These guidelines build on the progress made in adopting digital tools during the pandemic, and the recent guidance from NHS England, including the Integrated Care System guidance and the 2021/22 Operational Planning Guidance, both of which have digital and data at their core.
