UBJECT – Piloting App Prescribing Workshop
Frontline workers (any health funded role) are invited to attend a workshop, dates below, to help shape and pilot the use of health apps across Lancashire and South Cumbria ICS, both to support healthy living and lifestyle management, as well as part of core health pathways (e.g., diagnosis, condition management etc).
To sign up please email and enquire Simon Dickinson – [email protected] about future dates for March 2022.
The particular focus for the work is Social Prescribing, Trainee Associate Psychology Practitioners (TAPPS) and across MSK and Long COVID / respiratory pathways
However, if there is strong interest in any other pathway then these will be considered.
Webinar dates, times and meeting links:
During the November workshop we’ll introduce the exciting programme brief, then start to define the policies and plans for how we move forward, as well as capture a baseline about current views and level of use of health apps.
There will be two further workshops in early December to launch the pilots and March 2022 – dates for this will be published at the webinars.
This is a great opportunity to help take forward how apps will support health pathways now and in the future. We look forward to working with you.
As part of ongoing evaluation work, NHS have commissioned an independent study into staff experiences of digital tools to support patient access, remote triage, and online consultations. Participation from all practice staff is strongly encouraged – receptionists, administrators, clinicians, and practice managers.
Staff are being asked to take part in confidential discussions about their experiences – including what they would like to see improved.
These insights will inform future policy and how support is provided to general practice. Find out more and register your interest using this online form.

HEE Learning Hub and eLfH
A series of ‘how to guides’ have recently been added to the Learning Hub that support the use of simulation-based education during the pandemic:
To support the continued delivery of the primary care flexible staff pools, we have published the framework for digital solutions for the deployment of sessional clinicians in primary care. This includes information on which digital suppliers have been awarded a place on the framework and will help commissioners understand the requirements of the call-off, helping them follow best practice when procuring a digital solution to support this deployment.
Making use of the framework will also support commissioners/ICSs to meet the requirements of the Winter Access Fund. For any further information not referenced in this guide related to call-off or ongoing contract management please contact [email protected].
In October 2021 new requirements for general practice came into effect in the GP Contract relating to digital services. To help explain what these requirements are and to support the implementation of them we have published new guidance for GP practices.
