RSS, or Really Simple Syndication, is a means to keep up with regularly updated content from a website without having to visit it each time.
RSS feeds alert you when new material is posted on the websites that offer them. This saves you time as you do not have to then check sites individually. In the case of the Bedford Hospital website you can use it to keep up to date with our regular news articles.
How do I read an RSS feed?
In order to read an RSS feed you will need to use a reader, Most recent web browsers will have an RSS reader built in and RSS feeds can also be read from other sources such as mobile phones. There are also some Downloadable or web-based feed readers such as: FeedReader, NewsGator, My Yahoo!, and Google Reader.
The RSS symbol - shown below - lets you know that a feed is available. Subscribing to an RSS feed is a simple case of clicking on the link and subscribing or simply dragging the RSS logo into your preferred RSS reader.
