Last week (19–23 Jan) I was in charge of the @1000LivesPlus Twitter account, tasked with sharing My Working Week with followers as part of something new we are trying on Twitter. The aim of the week was to give some insight into my role as National Primary Care Manager for 1000 Lives Improvement, to share perspectives on that work with the hope of creating better ongoing connections and collaborative working – no pressure then!
