Working at Digital Health and Care Wales

What we do

Digital Health and Care Wales is a new and ambitious organisation. Created by Welsh Government, in April 2021, to lead on the digital transformation of health and care across Wales, providing digital-first service model for the 21st century. Large-scale developments that will make a significant difference to the people of Wales include expansion of the digital patient record and Wales leading the way by creating an innovative national data resource, improving the way data is collected, shared and used.

This new organisation builds on the digital architecture and national services put in place by the NHS Wales Informatics Service over the past decade and recognises the vital role of digital and data in modern care. By 2025, Digital Health and Care Wales aims to become an international exemplar for the digitisation of health and care.

Digital Health and Care Wales are proud to win the 'best place to work in IT' award at the British Computing Society’s UK IT Industry Awards.

Who you'll work with

Digital Health and Care Wales offers a wide choice of careers

“My day starts at 10am as I do the 10-6 shift. Our team manage the National
Data centres so we deal with a lot of high end projects and incidents that affect the entire NHS Wales network. A big part of our job is security related but we’re also constantly working on service improvements across the network.”
“As we support all NHS users it is important that we keep things running
efficiently without disruption.”

“I have a varied job in Information Governance. I take phone calls and emails
and I manage the ‘Wales Accord on the Sharing of Personal Information’
website. It’s a great place to work as I get to think outside the box.”
“I also have a great work life balance which is important as a working Mum.”

“We provide assurance and governance to all the national services we provide
to NHS Wales. This means that our services are a gold standard and fit for
purpose. We also do service improvements so our IT products are what our
clinicians need to assist them in delivering patient care.”
“I transition new Services from the project phase in to business as usual ensuring that the service is ready to go live.”
