The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that more health and care services are being delivered remotely either through digital tools and apps or over the phone. This includes physical rehabilitation services. Where previously you would visit a rehabilitation provider in person at your local GP or hospital, now you might be offered rehabilitation support remotely.
Eastern AHSN (Academic Health Science Network) is funded by the NHS and the Office for Life Sciences to bring together academia, citizens, health services and industry to realise the value of innovations more quickly.
We are working with Traverse, an independent research organisation, to understand people’s experience of digital exclusion and health inequalities within the East of England. Traverse are looking for people who are interested in taking part in an interview to share their experiences of accessing remote rehabilitation services, for which they are offering a £55 payment as a thank you for your time. The interviews will be carried out via video call or over the phone throughout May and June and will last up to 1 hour. If invited to participate we will work with you to arrange a time slot that works for you.
We are interested in hearing your story whether you have accessed remote rehabilitation or if you have tried but have not been able to. This could be for various reasons such as struggling to get a referral or finding it challenging to access the service.
Please complete this short survey by 1 June 2022 to register your interest in taking part in an interview. If selected to take part, you will be contacted within 2 weeks with instructions on next steps.
We will only be interviewing people from the East of England due to the parameters of this project.
If you have any questions about taking part then please contact Louis Horsley on [email protected]Back to careers
