Our post-war health and care were designed on an understanding that everyone just needs a bit of help from time to time. But if you ask what people need now, you’ll get a very different answer. We all need smarter and faster information- Instant access to a doctor, diagnostic tools that are state of the art.
Most importantly we have to take accountability and responsibility for the design of services by ensuring they consider the people who will shape and use them.
Kez Spelman, Provide Community, Director for Innovation and Community Resilience
Kez Spelman is Director for Innovation and Community Resilience at health and social care organisation Provide CIC, which delivers more than 50 services into NHS and community care settings across England. Most recently, Kez and his team have pioneered the use of hands-free wearable headset technology (RealWear), worn by nurses when visiting patients in their homes, helping them to complete tasks using both hands while they collaborate in real-time with an online clinician who can see through the nurse’s eyes, speak directly to the nurse and patient, and give appropriate advice and guidance. Kez’s pilot project has this month won the regional category of the Future NHS Award in the 2023 NHS Parliamentary Awards.
