People Participation

Dr. Navina Evans 12/01/18
As a patient and carer, I value small acts of kindness not specified in job descriptions. As a doctor I’m curious about the appetite for positive risk taking among fellow clinicians. I also feel the frustration of clunky systems and processes which get in the way. As a CEO, I want small acts of kindness to take centre stage and frustrations to be minimised. I therefore promise to be a very active, involved and engaged patient!

These facts were hidden from women for a long time, the true extent of which was only just emerging. 
It was very uncomfortable for me to know that I to belong to a paternalistic system where caring and lack of care can be so closely linked.
