    rish Greenhalgh is an internationally recognised academic in primary health care and trained as a GP. She joined the Department in January 2015 after previously holding professorships at University College London and Queen Mary University of London.

    As co-Director of the Interdisciplinary Research In Health Sciences (IRIHS) unit, Trish leads a programme of research at the interface between social sciences and medicine, with strong emphasis on the organisation and delivery of health services.

    Virtual Wards, A Crucial Component to the Future of the NHS

    In January 2023, NHS England unveiled a delivery plan aimed at recovery of urgent and emergency care services. The plan addresses the mounting pressure on hospitals by expanding the use of ‘virtual wards.’ These virtual wards empower patients to manage their health and care at home, serving as a crucial component of the NHS’s future. The investment, totalling £14.1 billion extra for health and social care, will focus £1.6 billion squarely on discharge over the next two years. By leveraging virtual wards, healthcare professionals can safely monitor up to 50,000 patients a month from the comfort of their own homes, thereby expediting patient discharge to the appropriate care setting while ensuring continuous monitoring.

    Telehealth Remote Patient Monitoring

    Join us for an insightful panel discussion that explores telehealth. Telehealth utilises electronic communication to provide medical services. Over the years, telehealth has evolved, enabling care beyond clinical settings through remote patient monitoring and automated feedback.
