I’ve won a competition… that never happens normally! The #Hellomynameis competition I entered earlier in the year just so happened to get me a place at the International Quality Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare with fellow healthcare students from across NHS Wales.
Having never been to London or an event on this scale before, I was slightly nervous about the forum. I travelled down on the train with fellow student Debbie and Angela, a lecturer at Bangor University. We were asked to try and use Twitter to connect, share and learn whilst at the forum, and as a bit of a technophobe, I was pleased that Angela was there to show me the basics on the journey down – I now see Twitter as a great way to connect and share information with others, all via social media, so much so that I’m now unable to stop tweeting, it has been great to connect with like minded people across the world and I even gained a number of followers after meeting them at the forum!
