This Network is for all of the UK Countries and local regions - whether you live in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland or England - you will find a local page relevant to you!

AIM : "To facilitate professional development through the exploration of e-health and it's impact on patient care within a new collaborative environment"


The eHealth Nurses Network defines e-health as the "The promotion and facilitation of health & well-being with individuals & families and the enhancement of professional practice by the use of information & communication technology".
