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.

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.
