The award, in recognition of the network’s ‘great impact’, was collected by physiotherapist Lesley Holdsworth, Scottish government clinical lead for digital health and care, and Mark Fleming, Scottish government e-health clinical lead.

The network supports physiotherapists and other professionals across Scotland who are engaged in health-related digital activities.

Euan McComiskie, the CSP’s health informatics lead, said: ‘The network is made up of over 225 digitally-minded healthcare professionals and enables them to share ideas and best practice.

‘It is a continuing professional development opportunity because it can take people out of a local mind set and open their eyes to multi-professional regional, national and international work too.’

Dr Holdsworth said it was a ‘real accolade for our network to have gained UK-wide recognition for the value that its members are making to the digital agenda in Scotland.’

The network is chaired by Sandra Blades, the nursing e-health lead for Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board. Physiotherapist Laura Cameron, allied health professions e-health adviser for NHS National Services Scotland, is a co-vice chair.
