On 27 July, the Science Museum will host a ‘gaming late,’ event, which will include an interactive exhibition showcasing NHS tech that makes use of gamification.
The free, adults-only, after-hours event invites visitors to get hands on to discover the importance of play and games for human wellbeing and brain health, while exploring the past, present and future of healthcare with leading experts.
NHS England are supporting one health related lecture:
- How to stay young lecture involving an expert panel including Dr Adrian Hayter, National Clinical Director for Older People and Integrated Person Centered Care discussing the latest innovations in medical science that keep us young and healthy. He will be joined by Dr Rupy Aujla, GP and founder of The Doctor’s Kitchen blog and podcast, Catherine De Lange, Magazine Editor and author and Dr Sara Kayat, NHS GP and resident GP on ITV’s This Morning.
Discounted NHS staff tickets for these lectures are available on the Science Museum website. From 6 July until the end of 2023, visitors to the Science Museum can also see the George Cross medal awarded to NHS England on temporary display in Medicine: The Wellcome Galleries.
In addition the Galleries will be full of activities exploring how medicine has changed over time and how the future of healthcare might look. This includes pop-up displays with NHS Clinical Entrepreneurs and their tech innovations, as well as a display on cultural food and nutrition.
London Ambulance Service will also be providing guests with information on lifesaving CPR and information about volunteering opportunities.
All Lates visitors will need to pre-book a free or VIP ticket in advance. General admission tickets are free and timeslots start from 18.45.
