August has seen Writing the Future, Kaleidoscope’s first foray into competitions, close for entries. As the world’s largest health science fiction prize, asking participants to write 3000 words on UK health and healthcare in the year 2100, we are really pleased to learn that we are not totally doomed!
Our aim for the competition is none-less than to shatter the groupthink of how we think about the future of health and care. Too often five years, or maybe ten at a push, becomes the limit to our thinking about what comes next. Instead we’re trying to think about 83 years hence – and the practical relevance today of thinking about the real long-term.
