Last week was a great for the #SolvingTogether community. The team had a great session with some friends of NHS Horizons from Lived Experience backgrounds. We really appreciated discussing ideas that the group had on how we can get people Heading #Home4Noon.

On Tuesday last week, @KerryEMcGinty, @LeighAKendall and @ElaineKing91 hosted a brilliant Twitter space session about the community management of the Heading #Home4Noon challenges on #SolvingTogether. During the session we heard some of their favourite ideas, as well as some useful information about the challenges.

On Wednesday the team helped facilitate The 100 day challenge embracing risk enabling patient choice meeting. It was great to hear form a range of speakers! Thank you @BevMatthewsRN for sharing this great nugget from @AimeeRobsom about the importance of conversations with those receiving care reduces harm.
