RCN2020 debate: Digital exclusion
October 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This is an online event which will discuss digital exclusion and how it affects health and social care.
In an increasingly digital world, people who are digitally excluded are at risk of limited access to services and poorer health outcomes. This can be seen more acutely at the present time, when people are less able to meet due to the pandemic. Those who have characteristics that are protected under the Equality Act 2010 (age, disability, race) are less likely to have access to the internet and the skills to use it. The latest estimates suggest there are 11.9 million people in the UK who do not have basic digital skills and 5.3 million people who say they have never been online. This means that 22% of the population are currently unable to benefit from the digital transformation of health and other public services.
