We are going to talk about the app. This was inspired by a great article by our friends at Gizmodo. http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2018/08/exclusive-heres-what-the-new-nhs-app-will-look-like-and-why-it-could-have-been-so-much-worse/

The intentions behind the app are exactly what you might expect: Make it easier for patients to access healthcare services, cut down on administrative burden, and eventually provide a means to connect with other health apps, like Fitbit and Apple’s Health app.

Introducing… eGPLearning PodBlast Episode 1

One of many things that changed in 2017 was my in car listening habits.

Driving to and, in particular, home from work used to be relaxing. But over the course of 2016 and 2017 something changed. I was arriving home more angry, more irritable, more worried.

Eventually, I worked it out. It was the radio. My brain was beginning to reject Radio 4’s constant assault of Brexit, Trump and bad news.

So I tried something different and started listening to podcast on my iphone instead.

Now I arrive at my destination inspired by an insightful interview, informed by a lively debate or perhaps even having learnt something new.

I encourage you all to turn off your car radio and try listening to a good podcast instead.

To cater to your listening needs and provide a podcast option containing news and interviews from a GP/Tech slant, @DrGandalf52 and I have joined forces to bring you the eGPLearning Podblast.

Please take episode 1 for a test drive and let us know what you think. Be kind, this is our first roadtrip and we are still have the L plates on the car…
