Centre for Public Engagement seminar:

What challenges do patients face on a day-to-day basis in managing their own healthcare online? We will explore some of the problems that have arisen, both for system users and those managing service delivery, and discuss how London Connect 3is both becoming better acquainted with the issues – and hence able to support the creation of pragmatic solutions.

We will discuss online access to health records and some of the associated benefits and barriers. We will also look at how you can use information to make better choices when it comes to your own health, such as how to find out what is locally available to support your specific needs.

This is an interactive session and we very much welcome your contribution to the debate – which we hope will shape the practical solutions we anticipate will emerge. After the event, you will have a better idea of what is on the horizon, as well as some key information to take home and put into practice.

This event is free of charge and open to everyone, so please feel free to pass this on to friends and colleagues.

This event is a joint venture between the Centre for Public Engagement,4 Healthwatch Kingston5 and is also part of Kingston University's extensive wider programme of Civic Engagement.6

What is London Connect?
London Connect is a pan-London programme that brings people and information together to promote and enable access to and sharing of information. What is unique is that we not only directly involve patients but we are also open to all sectors: NHS, social care, private, and third sectors.
London Connect is hosted by the Health Innovation Network, a membership organisation, driving lasting improvements in health and wellbeing across South London by sharing innovations across the health system and capitalising on teaching and research strengths.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
