New Chair for UKCHIP
Following the partnership announcement with NHS England and the Health & Social Care Information Centre, further work has been undertaken on plans to refresh UKCHIP so it can play its part in the wider approach to drive up informatics leadership, capability development and professional regulation in health informatics
As a first step in implementing these changes, we are pleased to announce that Dr Gwyn Thomas has agreed to become the new Chair of the UKCHIP Board. Until his retirement at the end of August, Gwyn was the Chief Information Officer for Wales and Informatics Director for Health and Social Services. Gwyn said “I intend to carry on promoting the value of informatics to the safe delivery of healthcare and to take advantage of new opportunities to try to continue to make a difference from another vantage point.”
Dr Thomas has always supported the development of professionalism in health informatics and this year has been awarded an honorary chair in the medical school at Swansea University, helping to design and deliver educational programmes to build leadership skills for informatics professionals. Dr Glyn Hayes will continue in his role of UKCHIP President and with the current Board members, will work with Gwyn to champion and contribute to the national collective leadership necessary to make radical changes for the benefit of the profession as a whole.
