This week this website plunges into the blogosphere. Five readers are charting their highs and lows, frustrations and triumphs working in the health service.

Among them is Innate Prejudice, who describes himself as "a CEO with a track record of failing to make sense of it all", and Inside Out, "a regulatory worker and a sometimes-critical NHS patient".

Samuel Johnson is blogging from Swaziland, where he is volunteering in the health ministry. Nadeem Moghal is a consultant paediatric nephrologist managing a regional service while Paru Naik is a business manager in the acute sector.

Interactive experience

Our bloggers will be pounding their keyboards at least once a week, so as they get into their stride over the next few weeks do take the opportunity to read and comment on their contributions.

And if you fancy yourself as an HSJ blogger then get in touch. Anonymity can be provided, so your trust, strategic health authority or even government office will never be able to track you down.

Read the first instalments at and let us know what you think.
