The challenge

The workshop will address challenges faced by NHS patients in understanding and accessing health services they need, and using some specific local challenges (such as diabetes) as a focal point.

The workshop will look at solutions to these specific challenges, building applications in other areas across the health service, with a high potential for scaling out successful solutions across the health sector.
