We need your thoughts. Where next for Netroots UK?

After running four events of different types now, we’re taking stock of the Netroots UK project, and deciding how to develop it this year and beyond.

We’ve got a couple of ideas, but it would be really helpful to get your feedback on some of the questions we’re considering.

We’ve put together a short survey, which should take only a minute or two, but which would give us some crucial insights into what you’d want to see at future Netroots UK events.

Photos and slides from Netroots Digital Skills Day in Birmingham

Thanks to everyone who came to our Digital Skills Day, run with Digital Action Lab at UNISON in Birmingham. We had a great time meeting an amazing group of campaigners, and it’s given us a lot to think about in terms of Netroots UK events.

If you want to read up on sessions you missed, or review some of those you saw, here are the speakers’ slides from the day:

Tweeting for our NHS

One request we had at Netroots UK 2012 was for a Twitter list of the best people to follow to keep in the loop on NHS campaigning, so people have one quick place to check in for the latest. We’ve asked around and come up with this list of 33 medics, campaigners and journalists.

Over to you now – Who do you think we should add to the list? We’re looking for people who mostly tweet NHS news or actions and are interesting original sources, so need your thoughts please. Leave us a comment or tweet us @NetrootsUK – Can we make it up to an NHS Top 50?
