Digital Health Event

Are you a carer that has limited time to visit the GP in order to request repeat prescriptions? 

Are you a busy working professional who would like to book a GP appointment online? 

Do you have a long-term condition and would like to manage your symptoms using your phone? 

There are many digital solutions available to help you manage your health. From booking an appointment with your GP on the internet to managing long-term conditions using an app on your phone.

An event is taking place on 18 April at Leytonstone Library to promote ways of managing appointments and conditions online. Public and professionals are invited to come along to learn about how they work and tell us what they want from digital health solutions. 

NHS Waltham Forest CCG Lay Member for Public Participation Richard Griffin said: “This event provides a great opportunity to get together, share ideas, ask questions and learn about the latest ways people can manage their health. 

“If you are new to using the internet and want to know more about how you could manage your health using digital solutions, we can connect you with training opportunities. We  also want to hear how people are using the internet and other technology to manage their health.”

This event is for people who are keen to use the internet to manage their health and discuss ideas around  digital health management.

To take part, please arrive on Tuesday 18 April 2017 at 6pm at the Hall, Leytonstone Library, 6 Church Lane, Leytonstone, E11 1HG. 

The event will be chaired by Richard Griffin, CCG Lay Member for Public Participation. Speakers include Digital Unite, Dr Phil Koczan the national GP lead for online services, and Chris Hutson from the London Borough of Waltham Forest. 

Delegates will be able to take part in design sessions looking at how GPs’ websites and other digital wellbeing platforms can best serve the needs of local people.
