It might still feel ages away, but the festive season will arrive far sooner than you think. We all know that it’s a time for eating way too much at dinner, huddling around the fire with a box of Quality Street, and watching classic movies such as Die Hard and Home Alone II: Lost in […]

Ok, so for those anti-vax-the-government-is-controlling-us-with-injection types, please do me a favour and move along.

Pretty much every day of my month’s annual leave I was working as a healthcare assistant within the surgical wards of my trust.
