What is Beth?
Beth is a secure platform powered by the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (the trust) that promotes supported self-management and opportunities to improve communication between service users, carers and clinicians.
It is currently in development, more features and improvements will be added in the coming months.
Who is Beth for?
Anyone can sign up to Beth to explore wellbeing tips and recovery stories and create goals and coping strategies. If you need help or support using Beth, please email email@example.com
If you are a service user at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, you can choose to connect your Beth account with your health record and care team. This will enable you to send and receive messages with your care team, share tracking, goals and coping strategies with them. Watch a YouTube video that shows you how to use each feature.
If you are a close family member, friend or carer of a service user at the trust, you can connect with their care team and let the team know how the person you support is doing.
If you are staff at the trust, you can access Beth via the icon in the top panel in ePJS. You can send and receive messages with service users and their carers and view updates that your caseload has chosen to share with you. As staff, if you need help or support using Beth, please contact the trust service desk. Watch a YouTube video that shows you how to use each feature.

Beth aims to demonstrate how personalised health records (PHRs) could enhance NHS service delivery and support people to stay well.
How does it work / what next?
Beth is built using agile development processes which enable iteration through user-centred build, test and learn cycles.
Beth integrates with the trust's clinical record system (ePJS).
The platform is being built open source and in a modular way that allows for future integrations, features and partnerships. Development of Beth so far has been funded by Maudsley Charity.
Beth will continue to grow and develop. If you are interested in using Beth in your trust or organisation or have ideas for how to add to the platform, contact: DigitalServices@slam.nhs.uk
