This week I met The Fish. I wasn’t expecting to meet The Fish, especially as I’d been hearing about the Frog, or the Glass Frog to be more exact. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect at all: having met most of the Kaleidoscopians at the Collaboration: Know How event last month I knew that I was joining an enthusastic, friendly, energetic team, but after working in the NHS for 8 years, I was still, well, terrified. The work they do is so far removed from the environment that I have been engrossed in, that I was panicking.
