Under the Equality Act 2010, organisations such as hospitals and GP surgeries must take steps (“reasonable adjustments”) to remove the barriers individuals face because of disability. As part of the NHS Long Term Plan, by 2023/24, a ‘digital flag’ in the patient record will ensure staff know a patient has an impairment, such as a learning disability, autism, or a long-term condition. Hear from the national project team and from North East and Yorkshire as this important project is rolled out across the UK.

This session will help you understand:
– What does the flag do?
– How a flag can be accessed.
– What progress had been made in early adopter sites in London.
– How to get involved in this project.




This webinar is open to NHS, public sector, charitable sectors, academics, and network sponsors only. Your registration will be reviewed, and you will receive confirmation of your attendance within 48 hours.
