What are RSS feeds?

Short for 'Really Simple Syndication' or 'Rich Site Summary', RSS feeds are an easy way to get updated when new or revised content is published on your branch and group microsites.

How do I get RSS feeds?

There are several different ways you can subscribe to RSS feeds. The most popular way is using a web browser. Some browsers, such as Firefox and Internet Explorer, natively support RSS feeds. All you need to do is browse to the feed you want to subscribe to, and choose the 'subscribe' option, e.g.:

Feeds are also easily managed in Safari and Opera. Generally speaking, once subscribed your feeds can be located in your favourites/bookmarks.

Microsoft Edge does not currently support RSS feeds, but they can easily be set up in Outlook. There are also many RSS reader apps available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
