Hello and welcome to the Uncaged PR blog.
My name is Andrew Davies and I am currently studying for a BA(Hons) in Public Relations at Leeds Metropolitan University.
After a very successful year working in the communications team at NHS Leeds, I have returned to a student world that seems keen to embrace the social media movement.
Social media within the NHS is very new territory and an area that many IT departments would like to restrict staff access and involvement. However, I feel this has lead me to have limited knowledge and understanding of just how social media works.
For that reason I have decided to dive head first into the world of social media in an attempt to gain more experience and become more interactive in a ever-changing PR environment.
I hope that those who share my situation can follow this blog as we learn and grow together, as for the rest, please feel free to comment and help us all to develop further.
