The patient journey - the one I had, the one I would want

Jen Gilroy-Cheetham, Programme Manager, Innovation Agency
@Gilroy19

Jen fell seriously ill two years ago and recalls how her care left her feeling unsafe. She makes a plea for a different way of doing things, in which staff work as a team, a patient’s feelings are acknowledged and it is clear who is in charge of an individual’s care.

Workforce: context setting, importance for the system, need to think differently

Karen Partington, Chief Executive, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
@PartingtonKaren

In planning to fill workforce gaps, we face a number of questions: how do we fully exploit new technology? How do we accommodate the needs of various age groups in our workforce – traditionalist, baby boomers and Generations X, Y and Z?

Wilson Wong, Head of Insight and Futures, CIPD
@DrWilson_Wong

Aligning capability to need - a tale of a spider and some triangles

David Harris, Director of People and Organisational Development, Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
@Dave_E_Harris

Only by acknowledging the complexity of our ever-changing health and care systems can we begin to make a difference. The spider is the individual at the centre of a web of relationships. Pull at a corner of our interconnected world – and it collapses.

Killing digital - making technology less intimidating

Ian MacIntyre, Head of Digital, NHS Leadership Academy
@IanMac196

We can make technological change less frightening by changing the dialogue: we should talk about opportunities, not threats. We should understand our user community’s attitudes towards technology and create a non-threatening environment in which to talk to them.
