NHS-R Technical Advisory Group

Ensuring that our community has technical guidance and support.

R is an amazing data science solution and because it has so many potential use cases and is under development all the time, it is crucial for the NHS-R Community to have an expert Technical Advisory Group (TAG), which meets regularly to discuss typical agenda items such as:

  • Consideration of candidate solutions for NHS-R.
  • Reviewing applications for the NHS-R academy titles.
  • Supporting the education and training programme including the annual conference.
  • Providing website content.
  • Supporting the community via Hexitime.
