The NHS North London Mental Health Partnership is helping upskill its workforce and progress the digital transformation agenda with the launch of a new digital academy.
So far, the academy has trained more than 50 staff across every facet of its organisation, with another 50 expected to enrol by March as the partnership looks to maintain momentum in its digital journey.
The training focuses on improving the digital capabilities of staff and making the workforce more data-driven, with the end-goal of enhancing patient care and outcomes.
“…understanding of our data and insights will be embedded through the organisation…”
The North London Mental Health Partnership is a collaboration between:
- Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust
- Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust
The training is being delivered by Multiverse, a company that has worked with more than 10,000 apprentices in data analytics and software engineering.
Chief digital information officer at the North London Mental Health Partnership, Sarah Wilkins, said: “Being part of this initiative means understanding of our data and insights will be embedded through the organisation, enabling us to enhance our services and improve patient and service user outcomes.”
She continued: “Not only will it drive operational efficiency, but it will also serve as a stepping stone in our commitment to professional development for our staff.”
Training and development along with mental wellbeing will be focuses at National Health Executive’s Workforce digital event this year. Sign up to hear about the latest initiatives being run by the NHS in recruitment, employee benefits, staff management and more.
