Digital Health and Social Care in close-up: London seminar latest

There are still a few places remaining for our seminar ‘Building Accessible, Inclusive Digital Health & Social Care Services’, taking place this Thursday 16th March at the headquarters of health & social care charity The King’s Fund in central London.


We’re delighted to welcome some very distinguished speakers to this essential morning-only event for health professionals and care workers. Here’s a taste of what’s on offer:

Dr Joanne Protheroe, Chair of Health Literacy UK, will explore the importance of health literacy. She will also outline current strategies being implemented by the NHS to give patients better access to healthcare-related information and services.

Sarah White from national deafblind charity Sense will present development of the Accessible Information Standard by NHS England and partners. She’ll be discussing practical implications of the standard in terms of service provision for patients and carers with a disability or sensory loss.

Nicola Gill of NHS Digital will report on findings from the 3-year Widening Digital Participation programme. This pioneering initiative has generated NHS savings of £6 million in terms of reduced GP/hospital visits through improved digital inclusion and citizen engagement.

You can hear all these presentations and more on Thursday 16th March. The morning programme starts from 9.30am, and concludes with a complimentary buffet lunch/networking session at 12.45pm.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
