NHS for change!

Normally I spend all of my time focused on local government but having spent the last few days in hospital following a football accident I have managed to view the NHS close up.

Question time!

Chaired the political debate at APSE's annual Scottish Housing conference at Peebles Hydro and its one of the most enjoyable events that I have been involved in for ages.

York FM!

It's the APSE FM Seminar in York and I arrive at lunch on the first day to be roped into chairing the Catering bespoke session in the afternoon. Fortunately all four speakers are interesting in their own specific specialisms. Lindsay Graham discusses obesity challenges, Bet Jenkins talks about secondary school uptake, Esmee Russell covers nutrient based standards for older people and Jim O'Brien explores excellence in civic catering.
