The Covid 19 pandemic has pushed many of us to live our lives increasingly online, but access to data can be expensive and beyond the means of many households.

The term data poverty has gained currency in Wales as it has elsewhere and we have been hearing about stark choices in families: “data or dinner?” So, what does this term data poverty mean? Who is affected? What can be done to help ease the burden? These are some of the questions we’ll be addressing in this session.

We will be discussing this topic and sharing ideas with you and hearing from you led by Anne Marie Cunningham, Associate Medical Director for Primary Care, NHS Wales Informatics Service.

Anne will be joined by lead discussants including Rob Ashelford, Head of Y Lab (Programmes) at Nesta and Douglas White, Head of Advocacy, Carnegie UK Trust, Anne Dhir, Head of Strategy at Snook.

Join for this DLWales Salon to hear from the lead discussant and share your own ideas and network with Welsh colleagues around this important topic.
