Equality, diversity and inclusion
At Guy's and St Thomas', we are committed to making sure that people who are unable to use, or who choose not to use, digital services are not placed at a disadvantage.
Digital inclusion involves:
- digital skills: being able to use digital devices (such as computers or smartphones) and the internet
- connectivity: access to the internet through broadband, wi-fi and mobile
- accessibility: services need to be designed to meet the needs of all users, including those dependent on assistive technology to access digital services
Support with digital services
Some patients, carers and family members have barriers that stop them from accessing our digital services.
There are a number of local and national services across the UK that can offer free digital inclusion support and digital skills.
