nhs logoTrain your staff and volunteers the easy way! Introducing the Digital Health Champions Network: a new online training platform for Digital Health Champions, developed in partnership with NHS Digital.

The importance of Digital Health Champions


A Digital Health Champion is…

Someone who helps people use the internet to manage their health and wellbeing. 
A colleague or volunteer.
A person who likes helping others.
Not necessarily an IT whizz!


With good digital skills people can: 

Order prescriptions and book appointments quickly and easily.
Find information to aid their health and wellbeing.
Discover local support groups.
Keep in touch with friends and family when they are in hospital. 


Having patients with good digital skills means your organisation can:

Take care of people who feel better informed and in control.  
Reduce the time and cost of administration. 
Reduce pressure on face to face appointments.
Make digitally-enabled care a reality.
