DigitalHealth.London Accelerator Senior Digital Officer

This post is part funded by the European Structural & Investment Funds

We are looking for a Senior Digital Officer to raise the profile and build credibility of the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator programme amongst the key stakeholder groups through effective management of communication channels, media outlets and production of ERDF compliant publicity collateral. This is an excellent opportunity for a candidate wishing to develop their career in digital healthcare technology communications.

The successful candidate will combine print media, design, content creation and digital communications skills, with ability to establish relationships and effectively collaborate and influence stakeholders at all levels.

The DigitalHealth.London Accelerator is the first programme of DigitalHealth.London. The programme is for digital health businesses that would benefit from better engagement with the NHS and the wider health sector, in order to refine and develop products and services that meet the needs of the system.

The Accelerator is run by a consortium of founding partners comprising of London’s three AHSNs (the Health Innovation Network, Imperial College Health Partners and UCLPartners), CW+ and MedCity. The programme benefits from strategic support delivered by Guy's and St Thomas' Charity, NHS England, the Greater London Authority, Digital Catapult and Silicon Valley Bank. The programme is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.

The year-long programme will be run over three consecutive years, and provides support to around 80 (20 – 30 in each year) small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The support, tailored to each business’s specific needs, focuses on engagement with clinicians and healthcare experts, refining products to meet needs, deepening understanding of the health system, showcasing in health facilities and developing business models in order to progress product development and access to the market.

The result of the programme will be a tight-knit innovation ecosystem to help SMEs to access the support they need to innovate and grow – including, uniquely, early access to the NHS.
