 A Huge thankyou to everyone who took part in the ‘Impatient’ survey


The ‘im-patient’ Summit


We’re putting on a pharma conference where patients are the ones to design, create and implement the programme. This way, patients really are setting the agenda.

Watch this space for further developments

FibroFlutters continuously
Advocating for a Multi-Disciplinary approach to all aspects of medical healthcare. With a model approach using all the ‘stakeholders’ I’ve designed a patient’s perspective of what patient-centred care, patient-included, patient-involved, patient-centric should look like and involve, that’s everyone by the way! 
You all need to pitch in!!

That small change of allowing the music to flood my mind, allows me to complete the task I want to do. The music soothes my soul and that reduces stress, which in turn helps reduce my sense of pain.”

Every morning and evening I was posting several links to a variety of online newspapers and thought that maybe I could post twice a day from here, our website/blog, Morning and Evening Post instead.

This is to ensure that all the news and stories go out to everyone that follows us across the social media platforms that we have profiles/accounts.

Here’s a few links to my favourite online newspapers for finding a variety of health related news from other Chronic Illness Bloggers & Warriors, for up to date news about health conditions such as latest research papers or people sharing hints and tips about how they cope day-to-day.

Let us help them by showing our support by sharing the news and stories that they share.
