#Healthworkers - Save the Children

It's been said elsewhere this week, but I make no apology for repeating...

I thank whoever looms above EVERY SINGLE DAY that we have Tiddler today with us. I am indescribably grateful to the NHS that we have in the UK. Yep, it has its detractors but we have an inalienable entitlement to first rate healthcare in the UK. This is for emergencies, scheduled ops and even elective healthcare with everything in between.

Tiddler has been in hospital for roughly 1/3 of her life. The talented, hard working and dilligent healthworkers that have saved her life as well as improved her health are literally too numerous to name but they range from a Consultant Paediatrician to Physiotherapist to Student Nurse to Radiographers....

She most certainly wouldn't have got beyond day 1 of her life if she lived in some of the lesser developed nations without good access to healthworkers. I have luck and geography to thank for Tiddler's good health today. This isn't fair. This isn't right. We can stop this by improving the provision of health workers in the developing world.

At home, you and I can help stop this by signing the petition here to urge David Cameron to stand up and be counted and push for the provision that all children deserve...


  1. Ah bless your little one. I'm thankful too that she is safe. Lovely post, a perfect example of how fortunate we are xx

  2. I do hope this campaign hopes a baby like Tiddler elsewhere in the developing world. thank you for sharing and lots of love to you and Tiddler X

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this and for adding your voice to our great big shout!
