Episode 26 – Our second series begins in earnest as we tackle a controversial new pathway that’s being rolled out nationally with very little information behind it. Stuart and Ed are joined by lecturer, nurse and all-round good guy Will Murcott to talk about the High Intensity Network and “Serenity Integrated Mentoring”.
Stuart and Ed finally manage to find an hour in their ridiculous lives to chat about the results of the third Mental Health Nurses’ Day, the professional perceptions of our trade, the public perception, and if there’s a future.
Finally, a December episode and released to coincide with our first anniversary – we know, a whole year of this unutterable bobbins.
THIS EPISODE CONTAINS A LOT OF SWEARING!!!
We got our three favourite comedians to give up some of their time once Strictly had finished and had a Zoom party for the faithful few. Join Ed, Stu, Susan Morrison, John Scott and Susie McCabe for a final F-Off to 2020!
All about food this one – recorded the day after the egregious Matt Hancock launched yet another celebrity chef-endorsed report into how rubbish catering is in hospitals, there’s yet more promises to feed everyone, while at the same time not feeding children or doing anything else even vaguely properly.
Finally your hosts have managed to record an episode in person! Ed went to Scotland for a wee break and managed to find Stuart next to a loch and, surrounded by our respective families, we recorded an episode for World Mental Health Day on Ed’s phone, complete with wind noise, spouses and children adding to the colourful atmosphere.
What’s the purpose of “mental health for all” when we can’t even look after ourselves? Don’t expect any answers…
In this extra-long episode, Stuart and Ed are joined by the esteemed Elizabeth Anionwu who, after her pioneering work on sickle cell anaemia, the Mary Seacole statue and appearing on Desert Island Discs, can now finally say she’s reached the lofty peak of being on our wee show.
