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

  • Ensure that digital elective recovery programmes reach some of our most vulnerable patients who are digitally excluded
  • Support adults to prepare better for elective admissions, with the potential to reduce lengths of stay and improved rates of recovery
  • Support our patients through digital technology pre and post-op so that after discharge we can reduce the likelihood of re-admissions
  • Unlock the potential for more patients to access digital support such as virtual consultations and app usage, within and beyond elective care
  • Increase the capacity of health and care professionals working in peri-operative care due to increased self-service and self-management by digitally activated patients
  • Reduce future demand on primary and secondary care services by digitally enabling our patients whilst on a care pathway

Are you the person we are looking for?
