With funding from Innovate UK, Priority Digital Health is carrying out a feasibility study for our digital screening and demand-management tool priority.you, to enable GP practices to triage patients into — or out of — practices safely and effectively according to need.While acting as a gatekeeper for appointment bookings, priority.you will not be designed to turn people away. For those who could be supported elsewhere, it will offer a range of targeted self-care, social prescribing and community healthcare services as alternative options.
ABOUT THE STUDY
Collaborating with GP surgeries, CCGs and research organisations as well as Health Enterprise East we aim to analyse and evaluate the full potential of priority.you. We are still inviting interested parties to be involved with our study. Please get in touch if you would like to learn more.
Priority Digital Health have been awarded a grant by Innovate UK as part of the Digital Health Technology Catalyst 2017.

Founding PDH member Louise McGill recently returned to her native Australia and will be helping to spearhead the development of new markets for the priority suite of health and lifestyle products.
Based on Australia’s east coast in Brisbane, Louise will capitalise on recent support and advice the business has received from the Department of International Trade here in the UK.
Louise said that, while Australia is indeed a very different market to the UK, the interest and growing demand for user-led digital solutions is at an all-time high.
“In general, Australia performs well across the different wellbeing dimensions relative to other OECD countries but there’s still very much a way to go.
“Interest in supporting both residents and their communities in looking after their wellbeing is high, with the preventative agenda very much leading the way in this area.”
