The Our Dorset Digital Public Engagement Group (DPEG) was formed in 2021.
It is made up of 42 members with a variety of lived experience across Dorset’s geography, demography and diversity, including those with existing long-term conditions who have an insight into using technologies to help manage and monitor their condition.
Dorset has been developing new digital applications to support our services in many different ways, and it’s vital that people have the opportunity to provide their views and feedback on what we are planning now, and how these online services will be provided in the future. This is the role the DPEG takes, offering invaluable advice and challenge to how we approach public engagement in relation to digital health and care.
The DPEG offers invaluable advice and challenge to how we approach public engagement in relation to digital health and care, to digitise, connect and transform services safely and securely. This will improve the outcomes, experience and safety for everyone in Dorset.
