Health Focus: Connecting care through virtual health
Tuesday 23 May 2023 from 6:30pm
Free, online event – book tickets by visiting:


Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT), which runs hospitals in Andover, Basingstoke and Winchester, is showcasing its innovative virtual health services at their next Health Focus event – and you’re invited!


The free online event will take you behind the screens, looking into what exactly virtual health means for patients, delving into virtual wards and how specialist staff can use technology to care for patients in the place they call home.


On the night, attendees will hear from HHFT’s Becky Housley, consultant nurse, about how hospital staff care for patients outside of hospital through virtual wards.


Hear about how HHFT and local ambulance services work together to get patients the care they need without going into hospital, or reducing wait times. The Virtual Health Hub has so far accelerated 2,000 patient journeys and avoided 3,500 hospital admissions.


Becky will be joined by other expert speakers, including Sam Jackson, clinical service manager for telemedicine, trust chief executive Alex Whitfield and hospital leaders from the wider Hampshire region.


With the chance to ask the speakers questions in real time, come along to discover the benefits of virtual health, its influence on the future of healthcare and more.


The tickets are free and can be booked by visiting:


Alex Whitfield, chief executive at HHFT, said: “We look forward to welcoming you to our next Health Focus event!


“This is a great opportunity to shine a light on the fantastic work of our Virtual Health Hub, which enables us to safely care for our patients in the comfort of their home. It is also an opportunity to hear more about what is happening in our hospitals and to ask us any questions. 


“The event is open to everyone, so please do come along!”
