A weird free hotel (that checked your BP every four hours – awake AND asleep): My recent experience of the NHS.

Addenbrookes fixed my bimalleolar (broken ankle) very well Happy 2020! I’ve been away from my website for some time (some of which was under my control some of it less so). I’ve been taking collagen most days especially while my broken ankle heals. A bimalleolar fracture wasn’t talked about on the ward (many and fairly varied painkillers might have interfered with my memory at the time.) Both bones in the calf required pins to...

Investigate!

Blue skies are here again! As an antidote to the functional infographic of pathologies further down the page here’s some blue sky to gaze at 🙂 although there does seem to be quite a lot of it about looking out of the window at the moment. Apologies for sparse posts recently. I promised a post about stress reduction strategies in my last post and that’s still to come as I talked about the bad effects of stressors on the...
