FOR ACTION! NHS Digital User Research with School Nurses

The National Events Management Service (NEMS) was created to improve the timeliness of information received by various HCPs. It does so by facilitating the sharing of patient healthcare information (referred to as events), through a publishing and subscription model.

Publishers create messages which are distributed to those who have subscribed to receive notifications, relating to that particular type of information. Currently, 9 of these ‘events’ are live, and a 10th is soon to follow.

To build upon the initial delivery of NEMS, NHS Digital has commissioned a project that aims to understand, from a user perspective, the perceived value of NEMS and the existing live events. The existing NEMS events have been lifted from the paper red book, and relate to the healthy child pathway. As such, we are looking to conduct user research interviews with GPs, school nurses, screening services, and midwives throughout August and September.

If you are part of any of these user groups and would be interested in helping deliver better care in the NHS, please consider taking part in this research.

Participation is voluntary and will consist of a 1:1 remote interview on MS Teams lasting no longer than 30 minutes.
