May 2022. New ‘Explore’ feature launched on the National Park Journey Planner 

 With so many wonderful places to visit in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, sometimes it can be difficult knowing where to go! That’s why, on Monday 16th May 2022, we launched a new ‘Explore’ feature on the National Park Journey Planner app. This was in response to user feedback that although the National Park Journey Planner was great at letting people know how to get to the park, it didn’t do enough on the why you should come to the park or the what to do when you get there.

The new Explore feature is packed with inspiration for sustainable day trips. It’s been designed to help visitors find the best things to do around Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. After finding a point of interest you like, just tap “Plan a journey to here” to compare transport options (including the price, duration and co2 emissions of each) and book them right there and then.

The National Park Journey Planner is a pilot project which shows visitors all of the potential travel options in one place, making it easier to research, plan and book a day trip. It is being trialed to encourage use of more sustainable modes of travel including public transport and cycling.

Go NHS Tayside pilot widened to include all Tayside patients.  April 2022. 

Following the success of the inital pilot phase with Urology patients at PRI, the decision was made to widen the Go NHS Tayside platform to all patients across Tayside. This will enable patients, staff and visitors to plan journeys to sites and be fully informed of all modes available to them.  The press release below was well received, along with radio interviews, social media coverage and NHS staff bulletins.
