King's Together Fund NHS Going Digital
The aim of the meeting was to explore the phenomenon of Digital Consulting and develop a plan to conduct collaborative interdisciplinary research on this topic. The meeting resulted in a King’s Together application for a project titled NHS Going Digital. The aim of the project is to explore how we could use a large existing mixed methods dataset (LYNC study) to answer a general question “How does the use of digital consulting changing the shape, nature and identity of being a patient and/or a health professional?” The project was awarded by the King’s Together Fund and the group is now working on a Wellcome Trust Collaborative grant application.
