Webinar will bring partners together to tackle digital exclusion

Community organisations in South Leeds are being encouraged to join 100% Digital Leeds to find out how they can work together to support people in Beeston, Middleton, Holbeck, Hunslet, and Belle Isle to make the most of digital and have better access to health services.

Covid-19 has changed the way people can access health and care services. Face to face meetings with healthcare staff have been dramatically reduced and many services have moved online. Some people may be unable or reluctant to engage with healthcare services digitally – such as speaking to their GP over video, using apps to help manage their long term conditions, or booking appointments online – and this is increasing health inequalities. We can work together to change this.

The short lunchtime webinar is for people who work with adults who would struggle to get online and access health services for whatever reason. The webinar takes place on Wednesday 11 November 2020 at 1pm.

100% Digital Leeds is working with the Beeston and Middleton Local Care Partnerships to develop and test a place based model for improving digital skills and access to help people better engage with health and care services using digital means. Learning from the development and implementation of this model will inform the future development of digital health and care services to ensure they are inclusive across Leeds.

This webinar will take place virtually. Book your place here. Details will be sent to attendees on the morning of Wednesday 11 November.
