Have you seen the news?

Health care is such a fast changing environment it's difficult to keep up with what is happening in the NHS.

With some many different sources of information, it can sometime be hard to know where to start, especially with the increase in fake news on social media and beyond.

But we can help.

Our Daily Health News service scans feeds from over 60 different sources every day. We review them and the ones we think you will find most useful are then posted onto our Blogger site, giving you just one place to look if you want to find out what is new in health and the NHS.

We don't include a lot of clinical items (you can find more of that via our Twitter account). Our feeds include:
  • Local media coverage of Northamptonshire health issues
  • NHS, DoH and other government sites
  • Think tanks like the King's Fund, Nuffield Trust and Health Foundation
  • Royal Colleges
  • Voluntary groups and charities
  • Health related news sites like OnMedica
  • Mainstream media sites like the BBC, and newspapers including the Daily Telegraph and the Guardian
You can access this service in a number of different ways:
  • Visit the web site
  • Subscribe to our RSS feed (you can find it here)
  • Most conveniently - you can subscribe to the service by email and receive one message a day with a digest of all the news, complete with links to take you straight to the item. Simply enter your email address here and you will be sent a confirmation email. Once you have clicked on the link in the email your subscription will be live. We will never use your email address for anything else or share it with anyone, and you can unsubscribe from the service at any time.
Our Daily Health News Service is an easy way to keep up to date with the issues facing the NHS and health care and we hope you will find it useful...
