Sensory impairment in West Yorkshire
Can digital tools improve the experience of people accessing health information and support?
Good Things Foundation is working with South West Yorkshire STP and mHabitat to explore ways to improve health interactions for those with sensory impairments. We are keen to understand the current situation, the work arounds that are being employed and ultimately how to make the health care system accessible.
As a wave 2 NHS WDP Pathfinder, Good Things Foundation worked with South West Yorkshire STP, mHabitat, local CCG's, GP's and voluntary sensory impairment groups to understand the current situation and how the digital market can be used to break down barriers to health.
