#WeGetTogther is an unconference for the tweeting healthcare professionals to go beyond 140 characters and meet face to face at last!

We did it!

On 12th Nov 2015 we successfully raised £8,500 of £6,000 target with 208 supporters in 28 days

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.
