“HIMSS events have an element of prestige associated with them. ELS is known for being a great place to share thoughts and best practice amongst likeminded CIOs. The networking and dinner element was really unique from a peer to peer perspective.”
Christine Walters, Director of Informatics, St Helen’s and Knowsley NHS Trust
