It's good when we get external people using Github issues with us on projects. It makes it so much easier having each issue/bug/thing as its own thread rather than having endless back and forth emails to trawl through to piece things together.

If they've not really used Github before it can often be daunting for people. Especially the idea that other people can see the discussions as something develops. There can be institutional fears about 'being wrong' in public. For me it is a strength to be transparent and for people to see the workings. It builds trust.

Discovered 2 English Heritage sites less than an hour's drive from home that we'd unaccountably never visited before - Mount Grace Priory, followed by Aldborough Roman Town, and bonus 14th century church

@keidav That's fascinating, so much potential for better use of data in emergency care

@keidav I was head of design for the teams that build the patient-facing website NHS.uk, and NHS App. Now I look after digital in urgent and emergency care - triage algorithms, directory of services, patient information flowing between care providers. We share what we learn at service-manual.nhs.uk/

Hey hey it's Friday! Just a reminder this survey is still open to choose a date for a SW Gov beach meetup. We'll be meeting at Exmouth Beach as it has good transport and is relatively accessible (for a beach). Families welcome! docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAI

Thank you Katherine and team. We learned lots. Brilliant to have patients in the room with us too, sharing their experiences, and talking together about how we can make things better
