What They Are Saying About 'The Big J vs The Big C'

This book is a must for all health care workers - doctors, nurses, students, caterers, cleaners, porters - the team needed by patients facing The Big C.
Stage 2a, stage 3b, stage 4 are numbers which tell us about diagnoses and planning treatment.The numbers do not tell us about who is on zero hours contracts or in insecure housing at risk of losing work and home, who is fretting about bus fares, who is caring for children or parents, the disruption to study and relationships, the time, the time, the time.
This book does tell us about people, the numbers and the NHS. Read it for your patients and yourself, to celebrate our part in this amazing service which is there for everyone when people need it.

Living with Monocular Vision

I wrote this for my employer's intranet Living With .. series written by disabled workers, and thought I'd share it here too.

What is monocular vision?

I only have sight in my left eye. Some people lose sight in one eye gradually, through illness or disease. My sight loss, though, was rather more sudden and dramatic.

'Painting the Town Red' in Lewes

Lewes Labour
14/11/2020 - 10:00

Lewes Constituency Labour Party is organising a big day event ‘Painting the Town Red’ for Labour across Sussex, Kent and Surrey. The purpose is to mix ideas and practical skills.

The day will revolve around music, spoken word, design and children’s events.

Janine will be opening the spoken word stream with a talk around the radical potential of spoken word.

Concurrence

I commented on
the common use
of vision as a metaphor
for understanding

"Yes", you replied
"I see what you mean"
