November was conference month, during which I attended both the PhD by Design conference at Goldsmiths and the Alcohol Concern. These were very useful both for presenting work but also expanding research network. Various valuable discussions took place, the key ones being with Becci Pearce (sociologist working in service design), Mike ward (Blue light project) and Linda Smith (Kent dynamic alcohol service pathway). Also useful for gaining personal rather than just generic email addresses for contacting key individuals.
Also this month I have started to look again at producing diagrams to help position the project and also to look at producing a graphic for illustrating service pathways.
