Welcome to the NHS Data Science Community for Health and Care

Find out how you can get involved

A Data Science community of practice


The Data Science community is a place where health and care professionals can find and share knowledge and resources as part of an active community, showcasing real-world examples and applications of the latest developments in data science in collaboration with NHS England's AnalystX programme.

The Data Science community will focus on the delivery of machine learning and deep learning and later will bring in AI elements into our framework.

Join the team!

We are expanding the Data Science community team with new roles to create an executive group that can take forward the work building a community of practice. These are volunteer roles, but require an appropriate level of time commitment: i.e., approximately two hours per week.

We were particularly looking for early-carers, apprentices, and trainees who want to get involved. In this case, enthusiasm is more important than experience. Ideally, these roles would suit someone who is employed by the NHS.
