So what is the standard treatment for leg ulcers in the UK? Unfortunately it has still not moved on from the dressing and compression treatment so popular 100 years ago.
It's the sorry truth most women can't handle because they are too dishonest with themselves to acknowledge that they have put on too much weight or have poor eating habits. It's time to start owning your fabulousness and your flaws.
Shouldn't university teach us to criticise simplistic or politically convenient definitions of happiness?
Headaches take many forms. Here we are going to look at ways of helping primary (non disease related) headaches which are usually classified as tension, migraine, chronic and cluster headaches.
When I was told I had breast cancer I walked out of the hospital feeling shocked, scared and broken. The first person I called was you. I can't remember a time in my life when this wasn't my natural reaction...

The NHS has a miserable history of dealing with whistleblowers. Its gagging clauses make it worse and the Service's current defensiveness is blinding it to the most important lesson implicit in whistleblower stories.
Look at the year the NHS has just had. Strikes, pay freezes, pension contribution increases, redundancy, massive reorganisation, industrial action, reconfiguration and more. A tough year in anyone's book but the survey shows us that the majority of indicators were stable or improved.
Encouraged to drink in order to manage career related stress, many of these women are said to have gone on to become career women and mothers who have exchanged their beers for wine, and from drinking heavily in public to drinking heavily behind closed doors.
