East Midlands Information Analyst Development Programme

The innovative Information Analysts Programme enables healthcare analysts to make a greater, more informed contribution to healthcare improvement. Historically, NHS Information Analysts have had very few training opportunities. This project identified the training needs of Analysts and recruited high quality training providers who could meet these needs. The programme ensures Analysts are able to contribute more meaningfully to the decisions which shape the NHS.
