NHS Hack Scotland - Edinburgh

23rd and 24th of March 2013

NHS Hack Scotland was a free, volunteer  run event that aimed to get people who work in the NHS together with software developers, designers and anyone else with bright ideas to build something marvelous (and open source) over the course of a weekend! 

The aim was to work together to build usable software solutions with the potential to improve healthcare. 

The people who came had all sorts of ideas to improve how people work in or experience using the NHS. Over 48 hours over 75 people who were passionate about the NHS and supporting it brought some fantastic ideas to life.

If you didn't make it fear not! We have pictures up of the weekend, a storified record of how it unfolded and a list (and github details) of the projects. You can see the video interviews of attendees explaining why they came and videos of the end of weekend project presentations on our youtube channel.

Thank you so much to everyone who came, volunteered their time for free and made it a fabulous weekend!
