What will happen?

NHS Hack Days NHS Hack Days were born out of frustration with the implementation of technology in the health service. They are non-profit events which bring together people who have problems and those who want to solve them. Patients, health professionals, designers and developers work together intensively over 2 days to understand what needs to be done and then build a rapid prototype to do it. No one is paid to attend an NHS Hack Day.
