YOURmeds - digital medication management

Wessex AHSN hosted a webinar for YOURmeds in Dec 2020. This system helps individuals take the right medication at the right time. The mobile-enabled YOURmeds Tag clips to a special monitored dosage pack filled by the pharmacy, and visually and audibly alerts at the time medication is due to be taken. If an error is made – late, forgotten, incorrect day or excess dose – the Tag will inform the user’s support network via a cascade of smart-phone alerts, so the right support can be mobilised.

Discover how West Lothian Council and Manchester City Council are using YOURmeds to manage medication in the community. By empowering someone to take their medication, West Lothian Council is using the adherence data as a daily cognitive check. A drop in adherence is a quick way to promote preventative health and social care. The webinar was chaired by Charles Lowe, CEO of the Digital Health and Care Alliance (1 hour)

Better Local Care: the story so far

Better Local Care in Hampshire wants to simplify how you access health and social care in your community by removing the red tape that often causes delays and frustration so you get the care you need at the right time, in the right place, by the right person.

It will achieve this by bringing together care professionals who already support the same local people, offering new ways for patients and the public to shape their own local services, and making sure care funding goes where it will make the biggest difference to people’s lives.

This video, produced by our CCG colleagues, describes the work of the Better Local Care programme over the past three years (2015-18), the results and what’s next.


Making GP practices Dementia Friendly with iSPACE

This webinar covers the key actions that surgeries need to take to become Dementia Friendly. Programme Lead, Katherine Barbour, discusses the experiences in Wessex, key successes and learning, and highlights the outcomes for people with dementia, carers and primary care.

NB: There is a minor erratum at the start of the talk. The three delivery models in Nottinghamshire relate to the spread of a dementia friendly toolkit developed during the iSPACE pilot in Derbyshire.
