Beverley Bryant to leave NHS Digital for supplier alliance

Organisation’s director of digital transformation to move into supplier community from August to help lead combined approach to mobile and shared record solutions


Beverley Bryant, digital transformation director at NHS Digital, will be stepping down from the organisation to take up a new role with the System C & Graphnet Care Alliance from August 1.

Bryant’s move into the supplier community follows the announcement last month that the Home Office’s chief digital, data and technology officer Sarah Wilkinson would be moving over to NHS Digital to serve as its chief executive. Wilkinson is expected to help lead the organisation’s work to provide technology and digital initiatives to support NHS bodies in England.

In deciding to move on from NHS Digital, Bryant is now expected to help lead strategy and business development for the alliance of suppliers that is focused on providing integrated IT solutions for health and social care, which includes care records and mobile decision support.

This will include sitting on the boards of both System C and Graphnet Health.

Bryant said she had opted to take up the new role with an alliance formed by the two companies in order to work across health and social care via an entity with a substantial user base and existing delivery record.

“I am really pleased and excited to be joining the supplier community to help drive real change at such a critical moment,” she said.

The System C & Graphnet Care Alliance has been formed as a strategic relationship between the two IT companies in order to share key directors and the development of solutions to support more integrated care services.

Bryant is therefore expected to help both companies with their capability to develop mobile clinical solutions and an expanded focus on shared care records, an area the alliance said there remained “a lot of work to do.”

“Beverley has a wealth of experience to add to the System C and Graphnet teams,” said the alliance in a statement.  

“Her responsibilities in the NHS included negotiating the spending review settlement to deliver the NHS and social care digital strategy, heading the NHS E-Referral Service and the Patient Online programme, and co-developing the strategy ‘Personalised Health and Care 2020’."
