Dear All Pharmacists – On privacy and trust

23 Sep

.

.

I was so upset yesterday about a breach of my privacy at a pharmacy (not the first one) that I ranted on twitter – and it seemed it struck a chord with other patients. Pharmacists who responded were horrified by the breaches discussed. The conversation continued on twitter all day yesterday, and continued into today. I’ve captured all the tweets in the links below (“All tweets”), and have curated too:

Women and mental health

4 Jul

Here are some thoughts of mine and of the lovely twitter people on the topic of women and mental health. No editing, hoovered up all the tweets during a particular timeframe. Enjoy!

On 9th June, I asked the question “How do mental health services need to change to better meet the specific needs of women? Suggestions please!”

Here’s the conversation that ensued over the next couple of days.

Why do news reports continue to use “history of mental health problems” as if it’s a complete answer to the “why?” of violent crime? It isn’t.

Some thoughts.
