Why Are We Killing The NHS?

Happy 65th Birthday John, We Miss You

This Halloween, beloved movie star from the eighties and early nineties, John Candy would have been 65 years old. Tragically for us we lost him in 1994 to a heart attack, however his legacy has lived on through his body of work.

There Is No NHS for Animals

In every sector there are good and bad. Good doctors and bad doctors, good bus drivers and bad bus drivers, the same goes for plumbers, builders, postmen, managers, customer service and every other job you can think of, so with this in mind you will come across a bad veterinary surgeon, nurse, receptionist , but in my experience they are few and far between.

No End to Endo

I suffer from Endometriosis. For those of you who don't know what that means it is usually a very painful and debilitating illness that affects over 1.5 million women in the UK alone, caused by the endometrial lining in the uterus migrating and growing elsewhere in the body.
