A tweet-up and a decision

Ann Marie and I met for lunch on 2010-01-20. This was arranged through Twitter and was thus a "tweet-up". A lot of the time was spent in that all important human activity "socialising". We now know each other a little better and that helps to build trust and understanding.


The important part of the discussion is that we have decided to organise an “unconference” in Wales to explore ways in which we can successfully empower patients to take more control of their health and work collaboratively with medical professionals.


We want to keep it to people working in health in Wales or experiencing the health system in Wales because health is a devolved power and the WAG has created significant differences in the way the NHS is run in Wales from the way it is run in England. For example, at the time of writing all prescriptions in Wales are free but there is no equivalent of NHS Choice.


We are at the very early stages of planning this but I am already looking for health professionals, patients and patient representatives who might be interested in attending. If you want to express an interest in the conference please add a comment with your name, email address, Google Wave identity (if you have one) and a short description of your area of expertise/interest.
