Good Things Foundation has been working with NHSX, NHS Digital, NHS England and local partners in health, social care, and community sectors to improve digital participation in health and care.
The Widening Digital Inclusion programme set out to understand the barriers for people with accessing and using digital health services. The programme completed in March 2020 – the month when the country went into lockdown following the outbreak of coronavirus. Since then, the national and community response to COVID19 has revealed digital as a universal need.
Digital participation has become essential for our lives, for our health and wellbeing. This new report brings together the lessons learned, practical tips and recommendations from the Widening Digital Participation programme.
