NHS Analytics New Knowledge
NHS England conducts several national surveys covering a range of aspects of healthcare, including general practice, staff experience and experiences of cancer patients. These surveys already provide an incredibly rich source of insight into NHS services, but so much more is possible. The team are looking to work with experts in innovative data analysis techniques to explore new ways of looking at the data. This could include combining the data with data from other surveys or other types of data, or developing new ways to find links within the existing datasets and present these in exciting ways. With each survey giving detailed feedback from patients and staff on their experiences of the NHS services they receive and provide, the potential to make new discoveries is vast.
Open to everyone - you don't need to be NHS staff to take part. Just bring your energy, your buzzing intellect, and maybe a notebook or laptop.

Register here for the NHS Analytics New Knowledge hackday on 23 May
The hackday is time for lively discussion and pens to paper. Working with NHS survey data and various other sources (BYOD - bring your own data too!), what new discoveries can be made? New tools to help patients and doctors? Visualisations to better communicate tough concepts and decisions? Connections between datasets that have never been seen before? It is all ready to explore.
