Care Connect Launch

There’s a new Care Connect service.

This is a unique new multichannel service that patients and the public can access online, by text, phone, Twitter and Facebook.
The initial pilot is running with 16 NHS Trusts in London and 2 in the Northeast, Gateshead NHS Foundation Trust and Newcastle Hospitals Foundation Trust with a view to national roll out in the near future.

The system allows service users to:

  • Share their experience
  • Ask questions
  • Report a problem

By making access simpler, the service helps people to quickly find answers to their questions and resolutions to problems and concerns by connecting them to the people who can help.

The pilot was soft launched in the North East on 1 August with a view to a media launch week commencing 9 September.
