A digital platform which has attracted 75k page views in the first five months of its launch has been lauded in two separate national healthcare awards.
JustOneNorfolk.nhs.uk is an innovative website, supported by Eastern AHSN and designed by Norfolk families and professionals to be the ‘go to’ resource for health information about children and young people.
The Norfolk Children and Young People’s Services’ platform has been highly commended as digital innovation of the year in the National Leading Healthcare Awards. Plus, the team’s JustOneNorfolk.nhs.uk community engagement campaign was also highly commended in the National Self Care Awards.
The website offers 250,000 Norfolk residents 24-hour access to a wide range of resources aimed at helping families, children and young people feel confident about caring for their own health and wellbeing. It offers interactive resources on a variety of topics such as healthy pregnancy, childhood illness and emotional wellbeing and provides guidance on where to access the right local services.
Eastern AHSN Programme Manager Sarah Nolasco, said: “The team have worked very hard to create a resource which really matches the needs of their service users and encourages self-care. It is great that all their hard work is being recognised when the site has only been live for five months.’
Sian Larrington, Head of Service, Norfolk Children and Young People’s Services said: “We are thrilled to get such positive recognition this early on in the JustOneNorfolk.nhs.uk project. I have to really champion the families, clinicians and partners that helped to create this incredible platform. It is a local resource, based on local need, which has been created as a local community and it’s great to see some national recognition for that approach.”
“There are many developments to come for young people, families and professionals over the next couple of years. JustOneNorfolk.nhs.uk is the leading edge on our digital offer as we strive to provide the best outcomes for families across Norfolk.”
Eastern AHSN has invested £165,000 in the justonenorfolk project. Find out more about this and other self-care schemes we’re supporting in the region.
