This blog is mostly about health and charities in the UK. There's quite a lot about cancer though this is due to my interest in its grip on public consciousness rather than any personal interest lying solely within cancer. Neurology, cardiac and respiratory problems are of interest too, as are the men and women who get them. There will be more about ageing and co-morbidities, in time.

I can be particularly cross about the impenetrable and ageist nature of cancer charities' awareness agendas. This is why I do no work in this area. I used to 'believe' in it. Now I don't.

Do search and comment. There may be a delay in getting comments up on the site, as I try and distract spammers with fake handbags to sell. There are RSS feeds for the blog or particular subjects.
