The NHS Transformathon


The event will be made up of 24 hourly sessions. Each session will bring together change leaders, health and care professionals and patients to discuss how they are making changes to improve their local health and care services, and the methods they are using to do this.

We’ll be hearing how patient leadership, co-creation, social media and human centred design are directly improving outcomes for patients. We’re going to find out how working with hierarchies and networks, building platforms for change, and using social media are improving health and care services.

The theme is ‘how is change changing and what does this mean to people working in health and care.’

Running alongside the broadcast there will be a number of live hacks, working to address local issues and develop solutions, with the help of NHS Transformathon’s global community.

This event is for everyone, so that together, through our ideas, methods and actions, patient care can be improved.
