Conversations to Transform Health and Care in York

Wednesday 26th May – Priory Street Centre, York

After months of planning and preparation we finally got to host our first Thrive Together Event in York.

A group people from a range of backgrounds, and all over the north of England, came together to take part in an ‘Open Space’ afternoon to explore how technology might be used to transform health and care.

We held a total of 8 conversations over the afternoon.  These are listed below and each is accompanied by a short write up and some graphics too.  Just click the links on the ones that interest you.  And please do join the conversation by using the comments to add your experiences and insights or to ask questions.

It was such a pleasure to see people smiling, connecting with new people  and generally enjoying the work!

Here are the conversations…

    1. David Smith, Chain Network:  How Can the health and care services extract value from the Chain Network?
    2. Angela Thompson, Skills for Care:  What digital tools and resources have been developed/are in development to support the delivery of the care services of the future?
    3. Ian McCardle, Leeds Libraries 100% Digital: How do you motivate someone to engage with digital health solutions?
    4. David Smith, Teesside Hospice: Data
    5. Jessie Jacobs, Northern Inclusion Consortium:  How do we stay better connected?
    6. Tom Bell How do service users influence the system when the system isn’t listening? 
    7. Sara Agar Brennan, Consultant: Innovative ways to encourage children to eat healthily to combat future mental health issues and obesity
    8. Linsay Cunningham, Humber, Coast and Vale  Health and Care Partnership: What do we do first?

We’d love to know what you’ve learned, reflected on, what you feel you want to continue talking about. If you’d like to write a post for the blog, share your notes or help us connect with other people who might like to join the conversations please do let us know through the comments here…
