NHS Launches #SolvingTogether Platform - Arthritis Action

NHS Launches #SolvingTogether Platform

26 January 2021

The NHS has launched the new online platform #SolvingTogether. The online site has been designed as a space where people can share their ideas on how the NHS can support people who are waiting for hip and knee replacement surgery, helping the NHS to improve their services.

With many people facing a long wait for hip and knee replacement operations, the NHS would like to hear from anyone who has good ideas and/or knows of effective practices or tools that can help people in the NHS and their partners achieve these aims. We encourage people with lived experience and carers to visit the platform on solvingtogether.crowdicity.com and submit their own ideas. Alternatively if you don’t have ideas to contribute, you can still get involved and help the NHS by voting and commenting on the ideas that are already on the platform.

Whilst the platform is open, a team of community managers will ensure each idea has an engaging response, connecting people where possible. Topic experts (champions) will also be evaluating the content whilst the challenge is live and when the people waiting for hip and knee operations challenge closes, every idea, vote and comment submitted will be reviewed and themed. The most promising approaches will be tested and prototyped and the practices spread widely.

The platform is being led by the Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance, Versus Arthritis, Arthritis Action, the British Orthopaedic Association and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, working in collaboration.
