Overall aim
  • Share the learning from our experience of transitioning wellbeing and psychological support onto a digital platform.

  • Examining the impact of this change on patient and family outcomes and their experience of our care and support.

  • Looking to the future - what learning can be taken forward in cancer care and the wider health-care context?


The pandemic fundamentally changed the way we operate as an organisation and also the support we were able to offer patients and families. Like many organisations, these changes were made as a emergency response and the time is right to now reflect, review and consolidate what this experience has taught us.

This informative session will appeal to a wide range of participants who have an interest in understanding more about our digital transformation. Led by practitioners from Beatson Cancer Charity, this session will include a formal presentation followed with a panel discussion and opportunity for an audience Q&A.
