Reason for applying for the scheme

Youssof's interests lie at the interface of digital and health. He is keen to explore opportunities where digital interventions can promote a healthier population through a life course approach, but also where digital health approaches can improve and optimise sytstems and processes, making them more sustainable and efficient.

Joining the Transformation Directorate at NHSE provides an opportunity to be directly involved digital health/AI thinking within the NHS and DHSC. Youssof hopes to develop a deep understanding of the digital health ecosystem in the NHS, where the priorities may be over the coming years and the key challenges facing digitisation of workflows and the patient journey.
