Funded Tablet Scheme for Care Providers

At the start of the pandemic, The CCG is partnership with NHS England and Improvement  funded an initiative to allocate tablet devices to care homes with 8GB of funded data per month. There were designed to be allow residents to communciate with family and loved ones, and to allow remote digital consultations to allow rapid access to clinical input from health services to support providers. As restrictions have relaxed, they continue to be used for this purpose as well as allowing staff to access training, to interact with health services including virtual MDT's, and to support the day to day business of providers. To date the scheme has provided over 150 tablets to more than 80 providers accross the area.
