About

Started by Alex Talbott and Tim Lloyd in 2010 #nhssm was created to help people working in the NHS discuss and explore the use of social media in healthcare.

Today it continues to do just that, supporting NHS communications and engagement teams across the NHS to use social media and digital communications channels to the best of their potential. Alex Talbott and Will Barker are now the community managers-in-chief, running the website, authoring blog posts and managing the monthly chats.

Super Ant LLP (reg no. OC412217) of which Alex is a Managing Partner administers #nhssm and deals with the technicalities such as hosting, the WhatsApp mobile phone and email servers.

On this site you’ll find blog posts on a range of topics within digital communications. If there is an area you’d like us to cover, or if you would like to get in touch about writing a guest post please email us on nhssm@superant.co.uk, or send us a DM on Twitter @nhssm

Training and consultancy

Similarly, if you would like to access the know-how and expertise Alex and Will have in communications & engagement strategy and digital content production please get in touch.

Over the next 12 months we will be planning a #nhssm regional roadshow to take our digital communications knowledge out to our community. We are looking for sponsors and partners to enable this to happen and would welcome any suggestions if you think this would suit your organisation’s objectives.

See you in the chats and around and about!
