The King’s Health Partners Digital Health Hub is an accessible national multi-disciplinary resource made possible by investment from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

The Hub supports training, co-creation, translation and the acceleration of digital health technologies.

The Digital Health Hub brings together expertise from across King’s Health Partners, including representatives from NHS and social care, patients and the public and industry partners, to provide support,  share knowledge  and create opportunities to promote UK digital health.


The King’s Health Partners Digital Health Academy offers resources to equip digital innovators to develop and deploy digital health solutions.

We offer asynchronous and hybrid modules, resources and workshops, ranging from core data science to co-creation and entrepreneurship, where learners can create their own bespoke training experience in digital health.

For training currently available covering beginner and intermediate level courses in Data Science and AI, please visit our Innovation Scholars website. Our offering includes R, Python, AI and more.


Co-creation underpins all projects within the Hub. We provide expertise in:

  • Co-design methods and practice,
  • Human-Computer Interaction for project initiation consultation,
  • Planning to ensure timely and appropriate adoption of co-design methods and tools.

We offer opportunities to pioneer and test new approaches to co-design with ongoing mentoring throughout the lifetime of a project.

Regular drop-in co-design clinics will be available with seminars and demonstrations on specific tools and methods from an online library to encourage knowledge exchange amongst adopted projects.

Our Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) Group works closely with the team to help the Hub establish consistent and meaningful PPIE, promoting innovative approaches and best practice across the whole range of activities.


Our Translational Support Service, in collaboration with the London AI Centre, offers an HRA-approved ethical and technical framework to expedite data access, crucial for rapid digital health advancements.

The Hub will support the enhancement of AI model development and training, ensuring robust solutions suitable for varied healthcare applications. It streamlines clinical validation and deployment processes, reducing time from idea to actionable data while improving data quality.

Two platforms are central to these processes:

The Federated Learning and Interoperability Platform (FLIP):

  • Standardises data across NHS trusts,
  • Facilitates AI training without centralising sensitive information, thus ensuring privacy.

The AI Deployment Engine (AIDE):

  • Integrates AI models with healthcare records for deployment in clinical settings,
  • Aligning with clinical workflows to promote technology adoption.

The Hub connects the digital health community to the London AI Centre’s resources. It covers the full digital health algorithm development lifecycle, guaranteeing solutions are practical, scalable, and ready to be used by clinicians.


All companies joining our Hub will benefit from our extensive entrepreneurship support. Our unique acceleration programme offers companies access to training and support from Quality Assurance, Regulatory Affairs and Health Technology Assessment experts.

The programmes will be delivered in the London Institute for Healthcare Engineering (LIHE), on the St Thomas’ Hospital campus. LIHE has been designed to facilitate the translation of medical devices to market collocating academics, clinicians, startups, experts, and industry partners, to naturally foster collaboration.
