Good mental health services are now recognised as vital to the NHS and to the health of the nation. With that in mind, the NHS Long Term Plan proposes to significantly increase mental health investment and envisages data and technology as central to transforming services. Stepping forward to 2020/21 sets out the need for continued development of the mental health workforce. We need mental health services that offer the best available care, provided by staff who can work effectively in a culture of continuous improvement. What will result when this policy alignment meets technological progress?
This webinar from GovConnect will highlight the potential for emerging technologies to impact on our understanding of mental health and the care that we provide, identifying broad trends that are already underway, which are set to transform mental health services and the workforce who deliver them.
