@ImpatientNHS service notice: any suggestions for more blogs and news?

impatient-nhs-logo-2My automated Twitter feed of NHS news and comment pieces, @ImpatientNHS, now has 334 followers and has produced nearly 13,800 tweets (see here for an explanation of how it works).

On Thursday 25 July it tweeted 41 articles and posts, from obvious sources such as HSJ, the BBC and the Guardian, but also the Scottish edition of the Sun (‘NHS in death surge probe’), the Health Policy Insight blog (Alan Maynard on big pharma) and the Northern Echo (‘Support gathers for NHS rally in Darlington’).

The aim is for it to help followers monitor NHS news and comment from a wide range of sources across the political spectrum. It’s great to see its output being retweeted or replied to, so thanks to those who have done so, including in the last week @lastbid, @inthesoupagain, @stevenwib, @peddraam, @csucassander, @robdykedotcom, @JohnMcNeill6 and Labour MP for Easington @grahamemorris. Dr Rob Findlay, aka @nhsgooroo, is another regular user.

Some examples:




I reckon it may be time to refresh the list of news sites and blogs – which are listed in the post from last December. So if you have any suggestions for additional sources that would be worth adding, please tweet me either @ImpatientNHS or @samathieson, or drop me a line – paywalled sites are very welcome, as long as there’s an open way to access their headlines and URLs.

As they say, the editor’s decision – and ability to set up a feed from the site concerned – is final.
