    SMS Reminder

    My diabetes specialist has started to use SMS reminders for my appointment. What a great idea. When you have to go to heaps of different doctors appointments its hard to keep track of all the appointments

    A nurse at every school with over 100 kids

    Let's have a nurse at every large school, especially in disadvantaged areas. They could provide 'at school' check-ups, family advice and weave preventative health into the school's activities. Small schools could receive regular nurse visits.
