University of Surrey partners with leading public and private sector organisations to launch Guildford Digital Health Hub

 

The University of Surrey and Guildford Borough Council have launched the Guildford Digital Health Hub (GDH) – creating a centre of excellence for organisation driven innovation in digital health and wellbeing. 

The University of Surrey and the Council are founding members of GDH, alongside Alloy Business Innovation, Bravand, Business South, Charles Russell Speechlys, Consentricare, Enterprise M3, and Play Well for Life. 

The aim of GDH is to support new and established enterprises in their ambitions to collaborate, innovate, grow, and bring their solutions to market at a local and national level. It will do this by making it easier to do business in the local area; connecting assets and entrepreneurs, established companies and new start-ups, through an agile, innovative ecosystem that supports them in their ambitions and promotes health, wealth and growth for all. 

Guildford is also home to the Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust and the Surrey Research Park, with a thriving technology and innovation community. The GDH is an opportunity to put the region on the map and bring significant economic and social benefits to the area in the future,  

Dr Jo Armes, Reader in Cancer Care and Lead for Digital Health at the University of Surrey, said:  

“Digital technology is fundamentally transforming the way healthcare is accessed and delivered. We are delighted to be a founding member of Guildford Digital Health Hub, partnering with regional public and private sector organisations to drive forward this exciting new venture around digital health.”
