We support NHS staff at work, help people get the best care, and use the nation's health data to drive research and transform services.

Our teams design, develop and operate the national IT and data services that support clinicians at work, help patients get the best care, and use data to improve health and care.

Our systems serve up to 53 million citizens and 1.3 million NHS staff. They are designed for a wide cross section of use cases from complex technical risk evaluation models to highly-accessible patient-facing digital services. They carry huge load, operate to very high performance and reliability and are cyber secure.

Equality and diversity

Equality, diversity and inclusion is at the heart of what we do.

One of the strongest features of the health and care system in this country is how equality, diversity and inclusion is at the heart of what we do – both in relation to our workforce and to the services that are provided for patients, clinicians and the wider public.

At NHS Digital our vision is for every one of our people to use their unique background and experience, together - to create outstanding technology and information for the health and care sectors. Moreover, as the national provider of data, information and technology to the health and care sectors, we have a role to play in ensuring that the systems and services we develop are accessible to the widest range of users.

Since 2016, we have embarked on a programme of work to deliver our vision for diversity and inclusion that goes beyond the requirements of the Equality Act 2010. We have made good progress however still have much more to do.
