From 1st August 2017, the Director of digital transformation at NHS Digital, Beverley Bryant is to leave the organisation to join the System C & Graphnet Care Alliance as chief operating officer (COO). The alliance is a partnership between two suppliers specialising in health and social care IT systems – Bryant will join the boards of both companies.
Bryant has led several key technology programmes in the health service, such as NHS E-referrals, Integrated Digital Care Records, Patient Online and electronic prescriptions. She is one of the key players in the government’s £1.8bn plan to deliver a “paperless NHS”, is leaving the health service for a new job in the private sector.
The decision to leave NHS Digital comes after spending over a year as director of digital transformation, and more than 3 years as NHS England’s director of digital technology.
At NHS Digital, the role of Bryant was to build an effective client engagement, digital futures and business change function that would facilitate the organisation to better support the National Health Service (NHS) and local authorities in their adoption of technology. She co-developed the strategy ‘Personalised Health and Care 2020’.
Bryant will work closely with the founders of System C, and joint chief executives Ian Denley and Markus Bolton in her new role in the private sector.
In a statement, Bryant said that the System C & Graphnet Care Alliance stands out because they work across the whole health and social care economy. They have real ambition, a substantial user base and an excellent delivery record.
She is pleased and excited to join the supplier community to help drive real change at such a critical moment.
