There is no real organisation to this page, these are just pages or blogs I enjoy and find rewarding and, if you don’t already know them, think you may too………

Directly health related:

nhs networks The whole site is worth a look but the blog is the most fun

a better nhs   Perhaps the most thought-provoking and often moving health care blog around

nhs managers  Home to the inimitable Roy LIlley

Human values in health care forum  and Think about health Two  interesting and thoughtful groups who run particularly worthwhile conferences

Patient Voices   This is how the site itself introduces itself (and it lives up to it): it ‘aims to facilitate the telling and the hearing of some of the unwritten and unspoken stories of ordinary people so that those who devise and implement strategy in health and social care, as well as the professionals and clinicians directly involved in care, may carry out their duties in a more informed and compassionate manner’

Altogether Better  Interesting model of citizen involvement, including some useful resources, such as this work on asset based community development

Vanguard in health. Great blog from members of John Seddon’s consultancy Vanguard.

GP Access Again the whole site is worthwhile but Harry Longmans blog is often the best bit: Harry Longman’s blog

Thinking more widely:

RSA  This is just such a gold mine, the RSA offers 150 free events every year and this site gives podcasts of all of them, Just brilliant.

OSCA   A consultancy working ot increase social impact – with some seriously interesting blogs

Metis   Another thoughtful blog, from a generic management perspective

Ken Robinson and creativity Now seen by millions, but not acted upon in education for health care professionals

Brain pickings A weekly feast of thoughtful literary pickings iwth a mindfulness bent
