Digital Inclusion:  Increasing Access and Use of GP Patient Online Services  

Funded through the City & Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group [CCG]

This small grants scheme will fund activities aimed at increasing access and use of GP Patient Online services for the benefit of digitally disenfranchised patients.

The CCG and local GPs recognise that there are Hackney residents who are not currently able to make use of on-line services.

  • Some older people and people with disabilities with no experience of using IT and the internet

Grant funding is available for voluntary and community organisations that can provide activities that will support more local patients to access and use GP Patient Online (POL).

Grants will be in the range of £4,000 - £11,000.    In exceptional circumstances we will consider applications for grants over £11,000.

Grants will be given for activities that:

  • Target specific groups of service users or community members who are digitally excluded and need support to access and use on-line services; and
  • Provide active assistance to patients to both register and use Patient Online services 

Timetable for applications:
