Alastair McLellan, editor, HSJ

"The covid-19 pandemic has driven an unprecedented rate of digital adoption, and digital solutions will be a key component in healthcare system recovery. Because of the quick uptake of digital solutions, in many areas there is no official guidance or “best practice” – learning from peers is therefore essential to fast track strategies in organisations and systems across the country.

The aim of HSJ’s new Digital Monthly Briefing is to act as a regular forum for digital leaders to inform strategic decisions and align objectives across the country."

Next briefing: 25 March 2021


The health and wellbeing of our attendees, speakers and staff is our top priority at this time. By adopting a virtual event proposition, we are able to continue providing worthwhile interactive content and updates, while staying safe at home and precluding the need for travel. 

What to expect

  • Takes place on the final Thursday of each month
  • 1.5 hours in duration
  • Hosted on Zoom Meetings, a familiar platform enabling smooth interaction and conversation
  • The briefings are hosted by the HSJ editorial team, with input from our briefing partner throughout
