    If you haven't been to the location before you actually have to go through the cafe (Foxcroft & Ginger) next to Tesco Express and then up the stairs. I thought it would save some confusion as it actually says 69-89 mile end road on the Tesco shop front.

    Hi all, Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make it down to London this evening, which is a real shame as I was really looking forward to the talks and discussions. However, I wanted to let everyone know about a digital health hackathon, run by Digital Health Oxford, that is going on this weekend (12/13 July) in the Launchpad at the Said Business School, Oxford, which some of you might be interested in.

    We have a mix of developers, clinicians and others, and will be focusing on problems including Global Health, Patient Experience and Ageing. We also have a number of bits of hardware, including a Google Glass and Oculus Rift, as well as Pi, Arduino etc. People are welcome to come and help code, hack, and also to come to the demo session at 3pm on Sunday to see what the teams have come up with. More details and signup are at . If you've any questions, please drop me a line. Enjoy the evening,
