People's Transformathon 28 November, 2016

The People's Transformathon was a fantastic FREE event bringing together patients, carers, service users, volunteers, and staff from across the UK and beyond to connect, share, and learn from each other.


  1. More info - there are recordings of all the sessions on this page too.

  2. The People's Transformathon came about because of a conversation with a group of patients (led by the fabulous @allyc375) who were dissatisfied with the status quo of traditional “patient and public engagement”.

  3. Promotion started well in advance. We were delighted that more than 400 people registered their interest!

  4. The People's Transformathon was the first global event to be awarded Tier 4 #EveryoneIncluded status by Stanford University - we are very proud of this achievement.

  5. Promotion emphasised the ethos of everyone is included, and anyone can get involved with what they have...

  7. ...and this Blue Peter style video by Horizons' Comms and Social Media Manager @leighakendall, including of course #hellomynameis

  8. Many different organisations helped us promote the event - thank you!

  9. Global interest!

  10. Our session speakers had already achieved so much; we were proud they gave up their time to present at #copro16 to share their knowledge and learning.
