Ann WilliamsCommissioning and Contract Manager at Liverpool City Council
I am a Commissioning and Contracts manager of Adult Social services at Liverpool City Council. Part of that role is as the innovation network lead which looks at innovative ways of delivering care against a decreasing budget and increasing needs. I have led the involvement in the EU STOP&GO programme that introduced IoT sensors and digitalising Domiciliary Care services. I have been a leader in the 5G testbed trial for Health and Social care at Liverpool. The successful testbed and trial has demonstrated that using a private 5G network with no specific data costs opens the possibility of a whole new range of technologies and a new way of working across health and social care. Helping to lessen the digital divide and health inequalities.
