Brilliant to see an #a11y meetup in Leeds, with lots of NHS Digital people taking part, of course https://twitter.com/ZoeMcClatchey/status/1112808415066247169?s=19
Awesome evening at the very first @A11y_Leeds event. Amazing to be surrounded by like-minded people (incl. colleagues from 3 of my grad placements!), and I can't wait to see where this meet up goes! #a11y

"We need to talk about Design Sprints” by Chris Compston https://link.medium.com/cy88kqlErV
I like the idea of calling them "design spikes" not "design sprints". We should have designers and design in every sprint, but sometimes we need a special focus on design investigation
Londonwards, looking forward to meeting up with my amazing #BevanProg learning set colleagues today. As a newcomer to the NHS I'm learning loads from leaders who have dedicated their careers to the service
