Technology plays a big part in the way people manage their everyday lives.

In Walsall we are embracing the use of technology in enabling people to take control and manage their own health, care and well-being needs as well as allowing us to improve the way we deliver services to meet the needs of the local population.

This includes finding new ways to share information between different health and care providers to enable safer, more joined-up care. It also means using digital technology to create new ways for patients to access advice, support and care.

We know however, that technology is not the answer for everyone. Some people don’t know how to use computers or smartphones and not everybody has access to the internet.

For those who would like to use digital services but cannot access them for whatever reason we aim to find ways to support you.

For those that don’t want to use technology our workforce will still be there in person if you need them – using digital and technology is just one approach to addressing the challenges we face.

As we continue to develop and grow our digital offer we hope the people of Walsall will find it easier and more convenient to access health and well-being support services online.
