Well done to everyone who took part this week - what a creative set of suggestions!
Our Primary winner is fascinating_wasp of Noel Park Primary School. They wrote very clearly on how greater engagement between the NHS and local schools would serve the health service in the future. Their answer demonstrated developed reasoning and also showed long-term thinking. Well done!
Our Secondary winner is accomplished_reality of Faringdon Community College, who came up with the idea of using an app to help people become better at helping themselves, before they attend a hospital or surgery. Well done!
Look out for our next competition launching shortly!
So far in this Issue you will have learnt a lot about how the NHS works.
There have been lots of new ideas that have improved the NHS. Everything started out as a new idea at some stage.
One of our experts, Sally Warren, was asked about the way the NHS will improve and change in the future. She mentioned the growth of technology and speaking to doctors by phone.
This competition asks you to come up with one idea that will improve the NHS, and explain why you've chosen it.
This should be an idea you've created yourself, that you've thought about carefully, and NOT just saying "give the NHS more money"!
What practical ideas will improve the service the NHS provide us?
- This could be to do about "front-line" treatment - in doctors' surgeries, hospitals and schools
- It could be to do with how the NHS is supported and funded
- It could be to do with how the NHS spreads its message / finds new staff
...or could be something else entirely!
We're looking for ideas, or a solutions to a problem, not just saying what's wrong!
The deadline for entries is Friday 20th March at 10:30am. Good luck!
My idea for improvement is.... This would be a good idea because...
