There’s still time for residents in Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes to give their thoughts and opinions on the future of digital health and care services.

Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes (BLMK) Health and Care Partnership are developing a Digital Strategy to inform how health and care services will be delivered in the future, making best use of the technology available.

Residents are urged to share their opinions about digital health and care services, what they think works well and what barriers there may be to residents being able to access services in this way. This will allow the Health and Care Partnership to gain valuable feedback to help them make digital health and care services work for residents.

The survey closes on Sunday 12 February 2023, so residents are encouraged to share their opinions before then.

All views given will be recorded and will be used to shape how digital services are implemented in the future.

The survey follows discussions about expanding technological and digital health services following the COVID-19 pandemic, which saw an increase in the use of digital technology to support the provision of services across the NHS.

Mark Thomas, Chief Digital and Information Officer, Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Integrated Care System, said: “The BLMK system is, at its heart, all about delivering services that enable everyone in our towns, villages and communities to live longer, healthier lives.

“We are excited about the potential for our data and digital offering to drive improved services and better experiences for residents and our teams. We look forward to working with system partners to make this strategy a reality.”

Residents can take part in the survey by visiting Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Digital Strategy for Health and Care Services Resident Survey.

The survey is also available in a number of formats, which can all be found on the BLMK ICB website.

If you have any questions or would like printed copies of the survey, please email [email protected].
