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.
Campaigners against the removal of the bursaries have calculated that, without bursaries, childcare or travel expenses, and with tuition fees and loans, nurses and midwives will accrue debts of around £60,000 over the span of their three year course.
Whether you're campaigning to leave or remain, surely we can all agree that asking the poorest in society to shoulder the greatest burden is a raw deal? But by refusing to address the very real consequences of EU membership, the maths of immigration, and the required investment in public services, a raw deal is exactly what's on offer.
Since the health service was established, tensions have existed between patients, physicians and policymakers, partly centring on resource availabilit...
A recent report from the Women and Equalities Commission revealed that for members of the transgender community, the significant discrimination they face in day-to-day life does not always stop when they step into the consultation room.
Mental illness among students is at the highest it's been since 2007. *TRIGGER WARNING* In the last few days a shocking report has been published...
You know what the problem is with the NHS? And I'm not thinking about too few nurses, although that is probably true, and I don't mean too little money, although that's a huge issue, and it's not that there's more of us and we are all living longer, although that's true too...no, the problem with the NHS is that consultants don't put in the hours.
