NHS England is seeking "Independent Members of the Programme Board for Gender Dysphoria Services", with an anticipated time commitment of twelve days across one year, reimbursed at £150 per day, plus reasonable expenses.

• A strong commitment to helping NHS England and NHS Improvement commission NHS services with a particular focus on quality, outcomes and the patient experience; and to bring that focus into the work of the Programme Board

• Current or past experience of using or accessing specialised gender dysphoria services as a service user; and an insight into the challenges that the Programme Board seeks to address

• A good understanding of the background to the work of the Programme Board, and the complex wider landscape (social; political; economic) in which the work takes place

• A good understanding of the sustainability challenges to the NHS generally."

I don't follow many artists but there's something about 's work that I just love. Colourful, dark, full of impact and I think there's a part of my brain that really digs the repeating patterns. =)

Earlier to-day, when discussing PIMs, I mentioned how much I liked the Palm Organiser software. I had a rummage in the office, and found my old Palm IIIx. I popped in a couple of AAA batteries, and discovered it is working perfectly. The calendar even accepted to-day's date (which slightly surprised me).

It is also in perfect physical condition. I'm feeling a bit nostalgic about my old device, but I doubt I have a practical use for it.
