Chief digital officer at NHS England, Juliet Bauer, will be joining LIVI - Europe’s largest video GP provider - in April 2019, to take up a global product role. She will work with health services across the world to support them in their transformation to a digital first approach to primary care.

Over the last two and a half years, Juliet Bauer has been a key element in the digital transformation of the NHS. Throughout this period, Juliet has encouraged the use of digital solutions to improve health outcomes and patient experience, and to deliver efficiencies for the NHS. The announcement of Juliet’s move comes days after the NHS published its Long-Term Plan, with a major focus on digital transformation.

Since its launch in the UK last October, NHS primary care providers have worked to offer LIVI to their patients for free at the point of use, and has already delivered thousands of appointments to patients, with 95% of consultations directly replacing a physical appointment.

Juliet Bauer, Chief Digital Officer at NHS England, said:

“I am delighted to be joining LIVI at such an exciting time for digital health. Technology has the power to deliver a step-change in clinical care and patient experience. I am looking forward to helping LIVI expand their outstanding service to deliver on the NHS’ long term plan, as well as supporting their growth globally”.
