What we offer

Our goal is to help carers and healthcare professionals work more efficiently, so they can save money and spend more time caring for residents.

We’ll help build your team’s digital skills and show them how to access healthcare appointments online, stay connected to friends and family and stay safe online. We offer bespoke content alongside our connections in NHSX to help you and your team:

  • Implement Proxy Access Support, enabling care home staff to order medication and access information in the GP record for residents in their care.
  • Register and use the data security and protection toolkit.

Mark - Health and social care team member Tracy - Health and social care team member Paul - Health and social care team member


Mark leads the health and social care team and says this role is the most rewarding of his career so far. He’s worked for Barclays for over 11 years and has been with the Digital Eagles since 2018.

Mark became a Digital Eagle because he wanted to help people build their digital skills. He enjoys helping people in need to thrive, especially in the fast-paced digital world. He says his top skill is building relationships, because he enjoys chatting to people and keeping up to date with their progress.


Tracy thinks her job is brilliant. She spends her days teaching people new things about the digital world and believes digital literacy can change someone’s life for the better. She loves to hear the words: “I didn’t know that; that’s really good to know.”

I’m so proud to be making a difference every day by helping people become more digitally confident through our digital upskill sessions.


Paul became a Digital Eagle because he believes technology has lots of benefits to offer society, and being able to help people reap those benefits is his dream job.

His job is helping people in the health and social care sector, like care home staff, build their digital skills and put them to use safely.
