Shocking Energy bills hit the vulnerable When Age UK asked me to talk to an APPG I welcomed the chance,  APPGs (All Party Parlitary Group) are made up of MPs and Peers from all political parties.  This one was  interested in Aging and Older People, and were meeting to discuss Fuel Poverty.

Strikes won’t cure the NHS

Recently I noticed they have a new product called Fizz sticks (little sachets containing citrus-flavoured powder - snip off the end and pour them into a glass of water) which seemed ideal to help my daily (tasteless) effervescent Solvazinc nail...

Knowledge and opinions from eminent, helpful professionals

Check out the diary page – read my direct, straight-talking insight into the world after cancer, drawing on my real-life experiences – which are sometimes bizarre!

Many whom you will meet in a medical capacity can be tight-lipped about problems that may crop up.  They may even try and brush them under the carpet, saying “no-one else has reported this”.  I suspect this is because hospitals often don’t have time or staff to deal with them. I have tried to list as many as I came across, together with solutions that might help you.  Look them up under the categories below.

Having fun after cancer is fundamental – for both body and mind. If you can’t laugh I hope this website can be helpful.
