Perfect Patient Pathway Test Bed PPI workshops

The Perfect Patient Pathway is an awarded NHS England Test Bed site. It involves 28 partners spanning across health, social care, education, technology and voluntary sector organisations in the Sheffield City Region. It aims to create the perfect patient pathway to bring benefits for patients with long term health conditions by offering them new solutions keep people well, healthy and independent to prevent hospital admissions.

This Test Bed site is being evaluated by a team of ScHARR researchers at the University of Sheffield, led by Steve Ariss.

The Evaluation team have been undertaking stakeholder consultation events with HealthWatch and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

On the 21st July 2016 33 people with a variety of long term conditions from all over Sheffield attended one of two Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) workshops. They were asked for their views and feedback on what they felt a perfect patient pathway would look like and their opinions of how useful they felt the proposed technologies/inventions would be.

It was highly successful generating excellent discussions and interest in the project.
29 people provided feedback and rated the technologies and 19 people expressed an interest in continuing their involvement in the project.
