George has supported a number of successful research collaborations with academic institutions across Scotland raising the profile of research within NHS 24. He established and Chairs the Digital Health and Care Innovation Board, bringing together, health, social care, the third sector, housing, academia and the Enterprise organisations to share information, agree priorities and to support the delivery of a number of joint projects.
