The main aims of the programme are to develop and deliver a digital inclusion wraparound support package which will realise the following benefits:

  • Support adults to prepare better for elective admissions, with the potential to reduce lengths of stay and improved rates of recovery.

  • Unlock the potential for more patients in Primary Care to access digital support such as virtual consultations and app usage, within and beyond elective care.
  • Digitally upskill patients, allowing them to access services themselves, and improving their health and overall wellbeing.
  • Reduce future demand on primary and secondary care services by digitally enabling our patients whilst on a care pathway.
