Channel 3 Consulting selected to sponsor the London CIO Council

Channel 3 Consulting has been selected as one of five sponsors of the London CIO Council for the next 12 months, following a competitive process.

The CIO Council brings together Chief Information Officers and technology leaders from across the different care settings into a single forum, together with representatives from NHS England, NHS Digital and Local Authority Councils.

The main objectives of the council are to improve communication across the senior IT community and facilitate collaboration and knowledge-sharing, to enable efficient IT delivery and high quality information provision as the NHS embarks on its digital transformation journey.

This opportunity is about two-way conversations – developing an even deeper understanding of the challenges CIOs are facing and debating new approaches and opportunities to break down barriers to change

Channel 3 Consulting is a market-leading health and public sector consultancy, and is already working with a number of London-based trusts to improve ICT understanding and implementation, enable effective use of shared care records and patient referral tracking systems, and develop long term digital strategies to support sustainable service delivery.

Working with the London CIO Council will provide opportunities for Channel 3 to share best practice, and discuss new innovations which have the potential to tackle some of the NHS’ key challenges.

Brian Gorman, Managing Partner, Channel 3 Consulting, said: “Developing stronger relationships with the members of London CIO Council is an important part of our commitment to share examples of our programmes that are having a positive impact, and fast-track some of the learning so that other trusts can benefit. For Channel 3, this opportunity is about two-way conversations – developing an even deeper understanding of the challenges CIOs are facing and debating new approaches and opportunities to break down barriers to change.

“We are looking forward to working with the members of the CIO Council and fellow sponsors over the coming months.”

The London CIO Council confirmed Channel 3 Consulting as a sponsor from June 2018, together with BT, Atos, Cisco and IBM.
