Digital consultations have helped Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust carry on providing care safely and effectively throughout the pandemic. We are a leading trust in the UK on the up-take of digital consultations, nearing 100,000 completed consultations.  

But how do our patients and service users feel about them? What kind of health care can you receive on the screen? How about group therapy? How does it compare with a phone call or face-to-face?

Join us on Tuesday, November 17 at 12 noon for our Virtual Health Matters: Patient experience and digital consultations. 

Our speakers will be:

  •  Marie Crofts, chief nurse, and chair of the event
  • Four patients/service users who have recorded their thoughts on video
  •  Natasha Browne, cognitive behavioural therapist at the TalkingSpace Plus talking therapy service
  • Oliver Shipp, Global Digital Exemplar programme lead.  

You will be able to ask questions during the event using the online Q&A function. We also welcome questions in advance by email to FT.MembershipCommunity@oxfordhealth.nhs.uk.

If you or someone you care for have experience of digital consultations, we would like hear about your experience at the event or in advance. We are all learning together!
