Leana Gater, from RDaSH, said: “The app provides another way for residents to contact us without having a face-to-face appointment.

"It allows a parent or carer to seek discreet advice and support whilst sitting in their own home, at a convenient time, without having to have a verbal conversation,

so It is particularly useful for our deaf community.”

In even more news the RDaSH team have been shortlisted for yet another award for the team’s Vaccination Hub, which opened on the Trust’s Tickhill Road site in Doncaster last year.

The Grounded Research team has previously won the Nursing Times Clinical Research Nursing Award in 2019 for its work on increasing access to research for patients and carers and for its work with patient research ambassadors.

The Nursing Times award winners will be announced at a showcase event which is due to take place on Wednesday, October 26, 2022.
