Can better digital build better lives in Leeds?

Hear about successful digital health and care initiatives, learn about what made them successful, share your own success stories and let’s talk about how we can collaborate to inspire and lead change in Leeds.

A Channel 3 Consulting event, part of Leeds Digital Festival 2022

This event took place on Thursday 22nd September 2022 at Avenue HQ Leeds and was streamed online.

Leeds is a city of contrasts. Vibrant, thriving, culturally rich post-codes sit alongside those where schooling, crime, housing and health and social care issues limit people’s life chances. 

Channel 3 believes people have the right to live their best life, with the best experience of the care system when they need help. Making better use of digital technologies is key to this, and that is why our purpose is to build better lives, with better care through better digital.

The life expectancy of two Leeds citizens can vary by over a decade, depending on the level of deprivation of their postcode (defined in the Index of Multiple Deprivation). Yet Leeds has been at the forefront of health and care innovation for a long-time, particularly in digital health and care.  So many awards, so much talent, and so much great technology and yet the impact is not what the people of Leeds need.  Why is that, and what can we do about it?
