NHS news is now easier to search with the @ImpatientNHS news database

impatient-nhs-logo-2I set up the @ImpatientNHS Twitter feed of NHS news and comment articles in August 2012. It’s been running automatically ever since, now tracking more than two dozen specific sources and hundreds more through Google News, with 443 followers currently.
