Shaping the Future: A vision for Widening Digital Participation
Mon 15 May 2017, 11:00 – 15:00 BST
NHS Digital has partnered up with Good Things Foundation to deliver a 3-year programme to widen digital participation in health.
On 15th May 2017 from 11am to 3pm, this event in Central London aims to bring Online Centres and CCGs together to learn more about the Widening Digital Participation programme.
It will be a chance to find out more about the programme, meet CCGs and other Centres and tell us about what you think needs to happen in your local area to improve digital participation in healthcare.
Our Sheffield and North Central London Pathfinders will talk through how they’re designing approaches to digital inclusion in social prescribing and with young people experiencing mental health problems. You’ll also have the chance to get the latest updates on work from NHS Digital.
Over three years, Good Things Foundation is running 20 Pathfinders across the country to pilot new approaches to digital participation that sit within existing NHS services and structures. Pathfinders will be funded and engage a range of local stakeholders to help patients get more out of digital in healthcare.
