Federation for Informatics Professionals


The Federation for Informatics Professionals (FEDIP) brings individuals and organisations together to share knowledge, promote standards and unlock potential in the informatics community.


  • Connect with the UK health informatics community to share knowledge and grow your network
  • Help to develop professional standards and ensure the best use of information technology in health and care
  • Take your place on the FEDIP public register and gain wider professional recognition
  • Demonstrate your competence and experience to colleagues, employers and wider society
