Leaders across Lancashire and South Cumbria invited to Digital Leadership Programme 'Seeing is believing' event
8th November 2018
Leaders across Lancashire and South Cumbria are invited to meet and learn from NHS, patient and community leaders on Wednesday 28 November from 1pm to 5pm at Haughton-Thornley Medical Practice, Hyde.
The visit is the first in a series of ‘Seeing is believing’ best practice visits and ‘Organisational RAIDs’ that will be delivered as part of the Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria Digital Strategy to provide local leaders with the opportunity to learn from peers and see examples of Digital innovation from outside our area applied in practice.
The session will be led by Dr Amir Hannan – GP and Director, Orbit Healthcare ltd, (local GP Federation) and Ingrid Brindle – Patient Leader.
About the pioneering patient-led work of Haughton-Thornley Medical Practice
The patients and practitioners and local community members around Haughton-Thornley Medical Practice in Hyde have come to national prominence for their work in using online access to medical records, online assessment services and health education as a means of actively engaging, involving and improving the health of their local community. This is referred to by Dr Amir Hannan and his patients as being ‘a Partnership of Trust’.
The Practice has:
- More patients using full online access to medical records than anywhere else in the country
- Won awards for their community led Health education programme for local Bengali women teaching English along with digital and health literacy
- A successful patient led online ‘Health Pledge’
- Been acclaimed as an outstanding practice by the CQC for its pioneering work around patient involvement
- Worked closely with patients and their community to rebuild trust following the Harold Shipman case.
What is involved?
This visit will provide Lancashire and South Cumbria Leaders and / or their nominees with an opportunity to:
- See an example of how online access and digital services can be used as a tool to empower diverse communities
- Understand more about the value that frontline staff and patients have in educating communities to self-care
- Gain advice and insight from national leaders in this field about how we can apply this learning across health and care services in Lancashire and South Cumbria.
The programme is open to all leaders in Health and Care organisations across Lancashire and South Cumbria.
In return we are asking all participants to share their learning and insight and look at how they can apply it in practice within their own organisations as part of a short blog. We would like to use these blogs as a resource for other leaders as part of Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria’s website.
