The UCL e-health unit has collaborated with NHS Alliance and ITN Productions to produce a short film celebrating innovation and new ways of working in Primary Care.
With the challenges facing Primary Care and the NHS more generally, including a larger and ageing population, budget constraints, and higher expectations of care standards, ehealth is recognized as a key component is achieving more for less. The film features several of the interventions developed by the eHealth Unit including work in areas of alcohol, safer sex and diabetes. It showcases the HeLP-Diabetes Programme, which was developed by the eHealth Unit and implemented via Help-Digital, a Community Interest Company led by UCL, as a working example of how research has been practically implemented into CCGs to the benefit of the NHS and patients.
