How to transform place-based health – an Uscreates Inside Design event

In the face of growing financial challenges, an ageing population, increasing variation in the quality of care, and a rise in preventable illnesses, place-based collaboration and the sharing of resources is becoming more and more necessary. However, this transformation requires a very different approach to thinking and acting for many health and social care organisations, coupled with the pressure to deliver more and better for less resource and in less time. Our human-centred design approach puts people (public, patients, service providers, workforce, and policy makers) at the heart of place-based health transformation, to rapidly but confidently identify opportunities, test, refine, scale and deliver results.

We’re excited to announce the following brilliant speakers for our next place-based health event:

A human-centred design approach to deliver rapid results for place-based health and care

This Uscreates event is for you if you are leading the delivery of your place-based plans and new models for health and care. The 2-hour workshop will bring together STP footprint teams, place-based thought leaders, and Uscreates’ design and innovation experts to discover how design can be used to deliver improvements to health, quality and efficiency in the face of current systemic pressures.



To make the event as productive and valuable as possible, we would like to work with a number of your real life placed-based challenges. By registering to attend the event, you have the option to submit your challenge in advance. We will shortlist a number of these challenges on the day for attendees and our facilitators to help tackle.

Through a design lens, we will be addressing challenges such as:
