Inspired by People

The second annual TEDxNHS event takes place on Tuesday 15 August 2017.

The theme is ‘Inspired by People‘  and brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Join us at Inspired by People on Tuesday 15 August 2017. We are going on an all-new, epic TEDxNHS adventure. It’s going to be a classic.

More programme details will follow.


There are amazing people in our NHS with inspirational stories and aspirational ideas. TEDxNHS brings these people together once a year on a national stage to share their stories. Attendees are inspired to think differently, dream bigger and design better for the population we serve.

Our first event was held at Campus London on Friday 26 August 2016 with a live broadcast in various NHS organisations. Learn more about the 2016 event. (registered users only)

The TEDxNHS license limits the event to employees of the NHS.

Videos of talks at the 2016 event are available to NHS staff registered as subscribers.
