How do I start a free departmental evaluation?

Forward is working to connect healthcare teams across the UK, empowering health professionals to spend more time with their patients, doing the things that matter. The best way for teams to experience the value of Forward is to get started on it and we are here to support you every step of the way.

For small teams to large departments, start using Forward today!

What are the next steps?

  • Identify a Forward Lead for your team/department
  • Get as many of your team/department to download Forward and create their profiles
  • Make contact with Forward and we will discuss how best to support your evaluation
  • We can send you a 1 page on-boarding guide that can be circulated across your team and a 1 page document on our security
  • We can also provide you with a simple powerpoint for use in your next departmental meeting

Do you need Trust approval?

Forward meets all the Information Governance requirements set out by NHS Digital and is already being used at NHS Trusts across the UK. However, if the Governance Lead for your department or your Information Governance Team at your hospital require details around our security processes and data flows, then we can ensure they have all that information with no delay.

We are also happy to speak directly if any party has any questions that they would like to discuss.
