The University of Birmingham has partnered with leading organisations to extract useful insights that are arising from a digital NHS.
In 2018 the West Midlands region received significant investment from Health Data Research UK to establish a new consortium to address challenging healthcare issues through the use of data science.
Together with our fellow Birmingham Health Partners member University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, we have formed part of the Midlands site, alongside the Universities of Leicester, Nottingham and Warwick.
Working collaboratively as foundation partners in Health Data Research UK, we will make game-changing improvements in people’s health by harnessing data science at scale across the UK.
Following an invitation to the University to join the Alan Turing Institute, as the Institute expanded its university network from its five founding university partners to 13, 22 researchers from across the University were appointed Alan Turing Fellows in 2018, joining the national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.
