Health and social care

In common with the rest of the UK the West Midlands needs to reduce pressure on health and care systems, helping citizens to better manage their own health. 5G is a key component; providing the connectivity to deliver care and support away from the clinic and in the community or at home.

To shape our thinking, we have continued  working with health practitioners and commissioners from across the region.  We’re engaged with major hospital, community and mental health trusts, primary care practices and networks, the ambulance trust and clinical commissioning groups.

Out of a series of engagement events, and informed by the changing demands created by COVID-19, we are currently focused on three priority project areas:

  • remote monitoring and support of care home patients
  • home delivery of endoscopy services to help tackle bowel cancer
  • connected ambulances to improve at-scene and in-transit care
