Data in Service Design at Parkinson’s UK

A look at how we've been using data at Parkinson's UK to help re-design our information and support services. Parkinson's Connect is a service transformation project to design and develop an end-to-end service pathway that meets the information and support needs of the ever-growing number of people with Parkinson’s and their friends, family and carers. In this presentation we will talk through how we have used qualitative and quantitative data as part of a service design approach as we prepare to begin delivering the new service from September 2021. We will look at the successes and difficulties we have had using data in service design and explore our strategy for the future of data in service delivery at Parkinson's UK.
