The last month has been spent discussing with practices the work that they are undertaking and learning more about data driven to in practice.  I have met a number of different consultants who are working with data driven to in processes and methodologies within practice.  This is hugely exciting and a real privilege to get an insight into how people are working.

On Friday 6th of December I had the opportunity to present to the research in practice group and there was enormous support for the Association and the way that this is moving forward.  The aim is to hold an event early next year to get like-minded people together.

If you would like to be involved then please get in touch.  Details will follow of the event which will be held in London.    Thanks for reading.
