Despite the assumption that we live in a super-connected and smart-phone obsessed society, it is still the case that many of us remain at the margins of the so-called digital revolution. As health and care services increasingly move online, what impact will digital exclusion have on the way people experience care? Who will benefit and who will be left behind?

This workshop brings together national leaders and experts in the field of digital inclusion along with local champions who are making a difference in our city. Nicola Gill, programme lead for the NHS Widening Digital Participation programme, will set the national scene along with Pete Nuckley from Sheffield based digital inclusion charity, the Good Things Foundation. Claire Duffield will share what is happening in our city to realise our 100% digital ambition.

This workshop is suitable for anyone who is interested in digital inclusion from practice or policy perspectives. You can also find out how you can get involved in supporting Leeds’ 100% digital ambition.

About the Speakers:

Pete Nuckley; I'm Pete Nuckley, Service Delivery Manager for the NHS Widening Digital Participation programme and Good Things Foundation. My role is to set up 20 pathfinders that will investigate models of digital health inclusion for the most excluded groups in England. We are working with homeless people in Hastings, people with sensory impairments in West Yorkshire, elderly isolated individuals in Sunderland and a host of others. I help co-design models of care and iterate them until we know what works and what doesn't. I have a background in service delivery, including being part of the GDS Digital Academy and front line services for people with complex needs in DWP. When I grow up I'd like to be a poet!
