(Apologies for the very short post. I know I haven’t written in quite a long time – my clinical placement is certainly keeping me very busy, and I’ve also been unwell which doesn’t help much! I saw in the news that today is World Cancer day so I thought I would write a little post to bring it to the attention of anyone who hadn’t realised. Hopefully I’ll be able to blog again before too long!)
