Monthnote September 2014

I’m writing this quite a while after the end of September. Ooops. My memories are vague, but through the four-week fog I remember spending many hours behind this door.

PHE door

At Public Health England (PHE), home of the door, September was a month in which lots of things came to fruition. We wrapped up the consultation period for changes to the team structure and roles. I reviewed the work Scott Turton, Nathan Flowers and Victoria O’Callaghan of SapientNitro had done with us on a digital strategy, and found it very good. The team worked on the ‘tail’ content from our transition of health protection content to GOV.UK, and diligently dealt with queries and suggestions from users.

September was my last month at PHE. I’ve handed the role over to Diarmaid Crean, who is now fully installed as their permanent Deputy Director for Digital. They are in very safe hands, and I can’t wait to see where Diarmaid and the team take it next!

At the anonymous IT company, my colleagues and I switched from making the case for being more digital, to figuring out how to get going. We’re basically setting up a start-up within the larger company, building on work some pioneering colleagues have been doing over the past few months. Fun!
