Dr Minal Bakhai to keynote HTN Digital Primary Care 2021

HTN is delighted to announce that Dr Minal Bakhai will be joining us at the upcoming HTN Digital Primary Care Conference 2021, to deliver a keynote speech.

The one-day conference takes place on 4 August 2021, and is open for all professionals to attend from primary care, CCG, PCN and ICS organisations, for free.

Dr Minal Bakhai is the Clinical Director for Digital First Primary Care at NHS England and NHS Improvement. She is a practicing GP, working at  an inner-city London practice for almost 10 years.  

Minal has experience stretching across policy, national programme strategy, research and implementation. Additionally, she is  an expert advisor at the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), appraising the effectiveness and safety of digital tools used in primary care to reduce preventable ill health and to empower patients. 

We’re delighted to welcome Minal to the event, who shares our passion for harnessing the power of technology to support dynamic, high quality, sustainable general practice and developing shared learning to ensure that digital tools are used to enable real transformation.

Last week HTN also announced, Dr Nikki Kanani, Medical Director for Primary Care for NHS England and NHS Improvement, will join us  to open the conference for the day.

HTN has teamed up with Dr Hussain Gandhi and Dr Andrew Foster, two Nottingham-based GPs, to curate Digital Primary Care 2021, a one-day conference to support a digital general practice.

The agenda will provide practical, educational and informative sessions, focused around digital solutions, approaches and examples, to develop skills and learn from others. Any primary care professional can discover, learn, explore and shape the future of digital general practice together. The event is also free to attend for anyone in general practice.

Digital Primary Care 2021 will provide a series of conference streams for practice staff, CCGs, PCNs and wider leaders in this area. We plan for digital and the future of general practice to be the main focus, but also to provide practical sessions for and from primary care staff to share and educate others.
