Let Them Eat Cake

Despite petitions and public protestations, The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson is sticking by his guns. The Health Secretary, Matt Hancock is insisting that the Government are already doing enough, with an array of other white men in suits telling us why he’s right, whilst ignoring the voices of over 2000 leading Paediatricians (what do they know, anyway?!).  Whilst [Continue Reading …]

While Children Go Hungry…….

I love Marcus Rashford! His statement on child hunger is brilliant, but I don’t entirely agree with him. In his impassioned plea for us to take child hunger seriously (which I could not agree with more), especially through the school holidays, he says: “this is not politics, this is humanity.” The reality is that EVERYTHING [Continue Reading …]

We’re Not Ready for Winter – We Need to Be!

The winter hasn’t even hit us yet. But it will and it’s going to hit us hard. Harder than we know. Harder than we are prepared for. Do you remember January 2015, with queues of people lying in corridors in our Emergency Departments, and a high spike in winter deaths? One of the people I [Continue Reading …]

I have found it to be utterly transformational in how I understand myself and how I can become my best self. I would recommend it to [Continue Reading …]

Poverty and Health Inequalities – What Can We Do?

Last week the Chief Medical Officer, Professor Chris Whitty, came up to Lancashire. He spent the morning in Blackpool and then came over to see us in Morecambe Bay for the afternoon. It was an absolute pleasure to meet him and to welcome him here. He came to listen – the mark a genuinely kind [Continue Reading …]

Taming the Chimp – Living our Values, Shaping Society

Prof Steve Peters, renowned psychiatrist, (particularly for his work with Sports teams) has written a brilliant book called ‘The Chimp Paradox’, which I regularly recommend to my patients. It’s well worth the read and full of helpful and practical tools to enable effective mindset and behaviour change. In it, he teaches about the 3 main [Continue Reading …]

Test and Trace – Time to Get it Right

Test and Trace is currently an absolute shambolic mess and there’s no point pretending otherwise. Over the weekend, a mum I know of in Morecambe was told to drive over 130 miles to have her children tested, only to find that the centre was shut when she got there! I know of another woman in [Continue Reading …]
