This Thursday, we will be voting either to stay in the EU or leave it and go it alone. Think carefully when making your decision as it will affect both your health care and your social care for decades to come.
Your country needs you, now. It needs you to not roll up in that polling booth and 'go with your gut instinct'. It's given you a heavy responsibility, one you might like to say "no thanks" to, but there it is anyway, weighing on your shoulders. Your country needs you to take a deep breath after the vitriolic debates of so many months, after the horrors of last week, after the despair and pain and confusion. Your country needs you to think clearly. So think.
My conclusion: Investment in social care, alongside more integrated, seamless working between health and social care, is of paramount importance if we are to ensure that reports like this aren't repeated in the future.
As those of you who read these blogs regularly will know, plans to cut pharmacy services by what might be anything up to a quarter threaten our sector...
The fact is, I need the EU to keep my government in check, I need the EU to control the financial sector that is tearing Britain into unequal chunks of extreme wealth and poverty, but most of all, I need the EU so the British government does not continue to benefit for my generations political apathy, implementing laws that take advantage of our alienation.
Stronger In have made the mistake of putting an entire generation of angry and disenchanted young voters into a box labelled "Remain Voters". That could be a big mistake... We're engaged in a different way, far from the prying eyes of pollsters and politicians. The EU referendum is being discussed in our private Facebook and Whatsapp group chats.
In all honesty, I mentally switched off a few months ago just after campaigning began. I am an NHS GP. The outcome of this referendum will have a huge impact on my daily life, my work, and my children's future. But I have to put my hands up and confess - I'm a doctor, and I don't get the EU referendum.
I am optimistic about what early intervention can achieve for people with eating disorders, but early intervention needs to take place earlier.
The use of the NHS as a political football in this campaign is sickening. Amid such bluster it's hard to discern what's right but I'm convinced that being a member of the European Union is the best bet for our most treasured public service.
I have been inundated with people on my Twitter feed who have had similar letters, due to having no cervix or not breasts since I posted this online. So I felt I should speak up. It does appear this isn't a one off or a confined to a small amount of people.
It's difficult, isn't it? Knowing which body part we're supposed to employ to help us decide in the upcoming EU referendum. Thinking with your heart is apparently an option, but so is thinking with your head.
I was frank with Mr Cameron stating that my co-workers and I are provide excellent patient care so as Prime Minister, he needs to provide us with the resources we need so that we can continue to do our jobs effectively. He thanked me for the service I provided and then remained silent. I never thought when arriving at the venue that I would silence the PM!
The movement for change must be met by more than warm words from those with the power to write legislation and apportion budgets. We need our politicians as well as the public to champion mental health at the highest level, with genuine commitment to the humanitarian as well as economic arguments for better services.
I will go for a drink with my nursing colleagues and talk about you and how sad it makes me, what you went through, how brave you were and how you inspired me. I will keep your story with me forever, joining my ever growing library of patients that I have cared for with cancer.
Over the weekend my piece on why the UK government turned away more than 2,700 non-EU nurses was widely circulated on Twitter and Facebook, but after ...
The dressing used to cover the infected wound on the body of the Conservative Party is completely off now and the stench of inflamed flesh tells a fascinating and bitter story.
