Great to see the team analyse hospital prescribing data of biologics for severe asthma

of course your suggestion sounds rather like victim blaming, but it also seems very expensive and time consuming for govt, and individuals, for something that doesn't address the biggest outstanding sources of marginal safety gain.

Here's my take on the psychodynamics of this: so many people are so desperate to work in academia that the broader ecosystem has learned to expect that researchers will act and think as desperate supplicants.

An academic journal asking me unsolicited and unpaid to spend hours reviewing a paper (this is the business model, fine so far..) also expects me to register and login to click "no sorry I'm busy". The insightlessness, entitlement, and pushing admin back on to academics, is nuts.

We wrote a BMJ paper about the need for access to hospital medicines data on the £8bn spend. Now we've got it! Here's our first output. An overview of variation in use of asthma biologics. By an NHS analyst seconded to t'DataLab!

I was shocked and appalled that hospital prescribing data was not publicly available when looking into this last year. This is a big win! Better access to this data will undoubtedly help improve the lives of people with severe asthma.

I'm weirdly fascinated by the shadow world of technic lego knockoffs on AliExpress. Not the direct copies, but the extensions, especially the electronic ones. It's lovely to think of it as an open and extendable platform.

“Open and accessible training for data science should be available for all clinicians” as they develop an interest. () - in response to my question about the requirement for knowledge and understanding of data science in the “average” clinician. Thanks Ben. 👍🏼

Hi is there a way to request bike delivery online or do you always have to telephone? I love you but I wish you had a better app or website in general. Viewing and confirming every box of your full address at every purchase is distracting and slow!
