Guy's and St Thomas' Trust focus groups on electronic care records
Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust (GSTT, which includes Evelina London Children's Hospital) are looking for organisations willing to host a focus group with their members, to explore how digital technology and electronic health records can improve care and communication with patients.
GSTT know that many patients want simpler ways to manage appointments and to view their health information. They would like to test these suggestions with different groups of people to understand what will work and where other ideas need to be explored.
If you are an organisation that works with these groups of people, GSTT are particularly interested to work with you:
- People from the LGBTQ community
- People with learning disabilities
- People with physical disabilities
- People with English not as a first language (in particular those who are Portuguese speaking)
GSTT are using a company called Participate Ltd to run the focus groups. If you are interested or have any questions you can email Participate Ltd on EHR@participate.uk.com or call 0207 8710488.
If you have any questions about this activity or Participate Ltd's role, please contact the GSTT Electronic Health Records programme team on EHRPMO@gstt.nhs.uk.
