The Digital Healthcare Council (DHC) has appointed Catherine Davies as Director.

Davies replaces Graham Kendall, who has served as Director of the DHC since 2019.

Davies has held senior regulatory positions in the health sector in England for almost a decade, including serving as Executive Director of Cooperation and Competition at Monitor and Trustee at both National Voices and Reform.

Most recently, Davies has been Managing Partner at Monticle, advising digital health companies on how to partner with the NHS at scale as well as advocating for an environment that is conducive to scaling innovation in a publicly funded healthcare system.

As new Director, Davies will lead the DHC, allowing the trade body to build on its work to date to expand its reach and provide support and counsel to members.

Davies’ appointment will also allow the DHC to expand its offer to more digital providers across health and social care.

Commenting on the appointment, Catherine Davies said:

“I am delighted to join the DHC as director and look forward to working with existing and new members, helping to unlock the potential of digital for the benefit of patients, service users and staff.

This is an exciting time for digital health and social care. The government’s new Plan for Digital Health and Social Care is a welcome signal of ambition, and we look forward to making our contribution to a thriving digital health ecosystem.”

The DHC’s aim is to promote a greater understanding of digital health and social care to build an optimal operating environment that is fit for today’s health and social care challenges and into the future.

Members of the DHC span health and social care, providing services to patients directly or in partnership with another organisation.

The current DHC membership includes Ada, AskMyGP, Babylon, CheckUp Health, Dr Fox, Elder, HBSUK, Livi, Preventx and Teletracking.
