Can you help fund #WeGetTogether please?

WeGetTogether is on the 29th of February 2016 and will bring together a few hundred of the most passionate tweeting health care professionals in the UK.  We'll be getting together to explore the future potential & possibilities of social media in health and how passionate tweeting healthcare professionals can improve care.

These health care professionals are all part of the tweeting WeCommunites like@WeNurses @WeAHPs and @WeDocs (to name but a few of the 15 communities) There's more details about the communities and the volunteers that run them here

We are looking for £6,000 funding to put together a conference with a difference. The cost of the venue, technology, catering and all the other little bits that soon add up and we are trying really hard to make this a free to attend event, that can really bring people together to share ideas and expertise on where we can take social media and healthcare in the next 5 years. You can read the #WeGetTogether blog here and the follow up tweetchat where the communities shared their wants, needs and great ideas to have a really impactful get together. 

#WeGetTogether will also be prolifically shared via social media, ensuring those that can't make certainly won't miss it and we hope to create a lasting blueprint of how we can take social media and healthcare forward to improve the care we deliver.

 

Who should support funding #WeGetTogether ?

You know when you when exhibit at an event and you are stood out in the corridor with your stand, beautifully laid out, with product demos and materials carefully crafted to give event delegates a slice of what you can do for them, BUT, the delegates are all in sessions, grabbing a quick coffee and chat in the short breaks and there's never enough time during lunch to come and talk to you! That's not #WeGetTogether at all. Our day is full of breaks, lots of them, so our delegates can spend lots of downtime chatting and mingling. And they won't even be obligated to take part in the structured part of the day too! There is 3 hours of unstructured time giving delegates lots of time to come and visit you and have a proper chat, not just the grabbed 5 minutes you normally get to scribble down their contact details. So please come and spend some time with us sharing your offering and enjoy the time you'll have listening to what the delegates need to offer great quality care too!
