NYHDIF Privacy Notice
(updated 24 May 2018)

Welcome to the website of our long standing and reputable group that provides information, support, and well informed debate to Informatics Directors working in the NHS across the North-East, East Midlands, Yorkshire and Humberside. This group has been established for over 25 years and as the chairman of the group I am committed to ensuring that the support this group provides to colleagues across our extended region is maintained and I encourage members old and new to participate. Our meetings are a great place to be kept up to date with new and emerging issues with regular updates from our colleagues at NHS England and NHS Digital and our membership incorporates all NHS and DH organisations across the region and we are particularly keen to welcome new members from our Health and Social care providers and CCG’s. Please feel free to read our website and you can contact me for further information about joining our group or attending our highly regarded November annual conference.
