West Lancs CVS is running an eight week project (January to March) with West Lancs CCG and the Digital Help Centre, Citizens Advice Lancashire West. The project aims to support better uptake of digital resources such as MyGP, Patient Access and the app review site ORCHA https://westlancs.orcha.co.uk/.
As part of this, the CVS will launch a VCFS survey on opportunities and barriers to ‘going digital’ in the borough.
What can you do?
1. look out for news, including the survey, in CVS updates and Twitter feeds (@westlancsbuzz, @levelcrossingwl)
2. contact Helen Jones – firstname.lastname@example.org if your group/organisation is interested in learning how to make best use of ORCHA
3. contact email@example.com if you have used, or tried to use, health apps and would like to share your (personal or group) experience.
Helen can be found at the Digital Help Centre (Citizens Advice, Concourse, Skelmersdale) on Wednesday mornings, or in later weeks at other West Lancs venues, for information about this ‘going digital’ project for health and self-care support.
