Patient Hack Day

We are holding our first Patient Hack Day on Wednesday 16 November 2016. The event will take place from 10am to 4pm in Conference Room 1 at Duncan Macmillan House.

What is a “Hack Day”?

A hack day is designed to unite people from all backgrounds and viewpoints to work together on projects in which they have an interest, with the aim of encouraging new ideas and innovative approaches. 

Our Patient Hack Day will help with the Trust’s research strategy by focusing our research efforts on the needs of our patients. It will bring together service users, patients and carers to work with academic researchers, healthcare professionals, managers, staff and volunteers to translate ideas into potential research proposals. This means that the Trust will have meaningful involvement in research.

We are asking for ideas around the following six research themes:

  • mental health
  • Forensic Services
  • recovery and peer support
  • digital healthcare
  • integration
  • a “wild card”

The successful proposal will then go onto receive funding of up to £5000 over three years for a feasibility study, awarded by the Institute of Mental Health as an ongoing Managed Innovation Network.

The conference is free to attend with refreshments and lunch provided. Places will be booked on a first come first served basis. If you would like to attend, please complete the application form [docx] 34KB and return to
