Ecosystem 18 – Jen Gilroy-Cheetham – the patient journey
Recorded on 27 March 2019 during Ecosystem 18 at Haydock Park Racecourse.
Jen, a programme manager at the Innovation Agency, fell seriously ill two years ago and recalls how her care left her feeling unsafe. She makes a plea for a different way of doing things, in which staff work as a team, a patient’s feelings are acknowledged and it is clear who is in charge of an individual’s care.
Ecosystem 18 was part of a series of events promoting digital health innovation in healthcare, run by the Innovation Agency, the Academic Health Science Network for the North West Coast.
