The Health sector is dominated by the NHS which employs around 1.7 million people across the UK, all engaged in a wide range of activities. Social care is the term used to describe the personal care given by public or private organisations to help people in society who need specialised assistance to live a comfortable, healthy, fulfilling life. Social workers help people to find solutions to their problems, protecting people from harm and supporting families. These services aim to provide care for and protect society’s most vulnerable and this could include children, young people, adults or the elderly. In this project, supported by the NHS and Agincare, you will be looking at the patient journey and thinking of ways to improve it using modern technology and improved communication.
