Praising the work of Policy Exchange’s Health and Social Care Unit for “leading the debate in Westminster on health and care”, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP unveiled the Government’s Plan for Digital Health and Social Care at a speech at Policy Exchange on Wednesday.
He set out his vision for ‘a more digitised… efficient…personalised system of health and care’ which puts ‘more power into the hands of patients and our brilliant frontline innovators’. Improvements to the NHS App are central to his plans. He wants to enable users to book hospital and GP appointments, add video consultations and personalised content.
