Each month our Notts NHS App – Personal Health and Care Record Programme Board meet to discuss progress of the project. After each board meeting key messages are provided to members and stakeholders. As the project progresses, the key messages will be released here too.

Communication and Engagement
We’re proud to announce that Connected Nottinghamshire, Patients Know Best and NHS Digital have been shortlisted as finalists in the HSJ Awards 2020 within the Digitising Patient Services Initiative category, for revolutionising healthcare on behalf of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Patients and Professionals. Empowering patients to manage their health and care, whilst enabling greater capacity and quality of care across our workforce has been the core driver for Digitising Patient Services. The Notts NHS App vision has been achieved through partnership working to meet local needs, to find out more or to register for the virtual ceremony click here
The PFDS Programme Board approved on-going external communication options to accelerate promotional activity of the Notts NHS App. A three month local radio and DAX advert campaign, alongside social media advertising will be held in the new year, following further analysis into demographics to target.
Patient Advisory Group
This month the Patient Advisory Group were introduced to the range of projects that have been developed under the Get Nottinghamshire Connected Digital Inclusion programme. The group discussed how to improve the sustainability of some of the projects and gave helpful feedback on how to help users maintain their digital skills after receiving input from Get Nottinghamshire Connected. The PAG also spoke to Sophie Randall, the director of the Patient Information Forum, and learnt about their work with Connected Nottinghamshire to improve the awareness of digital and health literacy across the programme.
National award winning Nottinghamshire Carers Roadshow founder Mr Trevor Clower, who is also a member of PFDS Patient Advisory Group, is helping and supporting our PFDS programme.
