I recently spoke with Dr Dean Halfpenny of The London Orthopaedic Clinic and Gina John of the Osprey Clinic about the condition of hypermobility. The interviews are available here on UK Health Radio – it is the second part of the programme. The contact details for both clinics are below. As well as helping to […]
I recently spoke with some experts and tried to get to the bottom of how to create a workplace that is both efficient and a fun place to be. It was very illuminating and the transcript of the whole discussion is below. The participants were Kursty Groves, workplace consultant, Tim Hanwell of Office Works and […]
