Embedding digital into the health and social care workforce is a priority for the NHS, who identify benefits in terms of supporting staff in their role and enabling them to deliver more effective care. Health and care staff can also encourage patients and residents to use digital as a tool to improve their health and wellbeing. To achieve this ambition, some of the 2.5 million workers employed by the NHS and Social Care sector in England will need support to build their skills and confidence to adopt digital in the workplace.
Since 2013 Good Things Foundation has been working with the NHS and other partners to support people to use digital. More information can be found on the Digital Health Lab website. This report shares learning from some of the projects funded through phase 2 of the NHS Widening Digital Participation programme.
