Wrap up from recent workshops, and next up

Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone for helping to make the last two workshops, over the last couple of weeks, so successful. We're writing up a couple of blog posts on these and will post them over the next few days. Particular thanks to Kellie and Regina from Databasix, and to Cyan from Incuna, for running these workshops.

The next workshop will be 'Designing Personalised Interventions', delivered by the fantastic Ctrl Group, on Thursday 1st December. We'll be back in the JR for this workshop, in the George Pickering Education Centre, and huge thanks go to OUCAGS for their help and support with this. More details and signup are on the DHOx Meetup page.

DHOx Seminar - A Big Picture View of Digital Health - 29th November, Oxford Brookes

The two speakers are Tracey Grainger, Head of Digital Primary Care Development, NHS England, and Dominic McKenny, Chief Information Officer at Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. We'll be posting more details online shortly, but signup on the Meetup page to get your place for the the final evening seminar of 2016.
