The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames is a borough in southwest London, and the oldest of the four Royal Boroughs in England. The borough’s public health responsibilities include health improvement, assurance of local health protection services and providing commissioning support for the Kingston Clinical Commissioning Group (KCCG) which is the local body responsible for buying local health services. More than £15 million is set to be spent in Kingston over the next two years on innovative, integrated adult health and social care services.
“Today, contacting residents at risk of osteoporosis and getting them to attend an assessment session is a very manual and time-consuming process for us. With this new website, we want to empower patients to conduct self-assessment online, leading them into a 12-week programme where they can learn about bone health, and follow exercises that will keep them fit through the medium of interactive videos and educational online content,” said Aniko Szucs, Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. “The health of our bones is instrumental to our health and longevity in general, so we hope that this new website will educate, inform, and help people live in the best way for longer.”
Chris Williams, client account director, Lab, said, “We are delighted that the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames has chosen us to help out with this extremely important venture. We have extensive experience in developing online systems and websites in the health sector to allow people to conduct self-assessment, and help educate themselves about various conditions. Bone health, and educating people on how important it is, is such an important undertaking. You need to protect your bones from an early age. If you are in your twenties or thirties, you can take active steps to prevent future problems. If you are older, there are new things that can make a significant difference now. Education on looking after yourself is what this new website will promote, and we hope it helps makes a significant difference to people’s lives.”
