I looked after my husband until he died of lung cancer and vascular dementia.  I was lucky in that I was able to share my concerns with friends, his doctor, his oncologist and our admiral nurse.  Sharing was crucial in coping, and healthtalk is invaluable.  I wish I had been able to share when in 1958 I was given ECT with no anaesthetic and for no good reason.

Sharing information between health professionals and patients and between patients are vital components of modern healthcare. Healthtalk is a dynamic organisation which acts as a fantastic conduit for reliable information flow. It is very much part of medicine's future.

healthtalk.org is such as sensible idea and I can see why so many people use it. More importantly why so many people benefit from it. I wish it all the best for the future.
