Reporting TEDxNHS: Add questions for leading health professionals


WikiTribune will be attending TEDxNHS, a series of talks about the UK national health service in its 70th year of operation.

The event (program link) in London on August 21 will explore the theme “Shaping Our Legacy” through the topics: “Infectious ideas: disruptive innovations that go viral,” “Untold stories: the everyday extraordinary” and “Evolution: imperfections, resilience, and learning to adapt.”

Speakers include:

  • Hannah Burd, a senior advisor at the Behavioural Insights Team, a government organization that uses “nudge theory” to create government policy that works on projects in partnership with the NHS
  • Diane Ashiru-Oredope, the lead pharmacist for the Antimicrobial Resistance Programme at Public Health England; and
  • Jane Anderson, a consultant physician in HIV medicine at Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in Hackney, east London

What stories could WikiTribune produce on the “NHS at 70”?

  • How technology is transforming healthcare
  • What are the challenges caused by the rising cost of healthcare as populations age
  • Brexit and the NHS: How lack of funding has put vital health services on hold
  • Happy workers: The NHS is promoting fun to help overworked staff
  • HIV: stigma is biggest threat to HIV progress
