NCL Wide

The Digital First programme in NCL is part of a nationally funded NHS programme to open up digital access to primary care for patients.

The programme covers areas such as online and video consultation, health records access, providing training and change management support to practices, developing support for patients in using new technology and methods, digital telephony support, and combating digital exclusion for patients.

The Digital First programme board and team

The Digital First programme team reports to a board made up of representatives from NCL CCG, clinicians and patient representatives.

As well as a monthly highlight report, there are bi-monthly meetings and ad-hoc reports to demonstrate progress in the projects undertaken by the team. The board also approves suggested projects and expenditure.

How GP IT works in NCL

In Barnet, Enfield, Haringey and Islington, GP IT services are provided by the London Shared Services (LSS) team.

In Camden, there is a borough specific GP IT team.
