Wish me well. Having kicked ass re healthcare in Wales I have a meeting with the Health Minister Mark Drakeford and my MP Kevin Brennan who sits on the APPG for Ovarian Cancer at Westminster.
I was going to take your advice and put my feet up, have a pedicure, a glass of wine and a snooze in my favourite chair - but now I'm propelled into a frenzy of phone calls. Target Ovarian Cancer have given loads of helpful advice. I'm reading learned papers on health care written by Professor Mark Drakeford before he became Mr Mark Drayford, an AM, and Minister for Health for Wales. I'm busy swotting up facts and figures and I have to be prepared to repeat the story I told at the APPG. That of the four women being treated so inequitably by three different health boards in South Wales.
I'll also pronounce bevacizumab correctly this time thanks to Gwyn sending me the URL to a pronunciation dictionary. Beva-sisu-mab. I could suggest a fairer method of allocating the drug in Wales is to give it to those of us who can pronounce it!!! lol
Love n everything to you all, Annie xxxxx
