I have stumbled across a positive corner of Twitter where a group of health professionals and their followers have a virtual #Twitterdisco along a predefined theme by posting links to music videos (and videos of themselves). I’ve managed to accidentally get myself invited on as a “Guest DJ” which is ironic as I have bought next to no new music for the last 15 years and I’m not known for being the most positive social media user…
So for those curious enough to know, this is my dusty old website which I rarely use these days. Probably because I have been busy as a GP, dad, father, husband etc… But also because I have been doing some management work (CCG project and a superpartnership; yawn – now finished) and for the last few years I have been luck enough to get things I have written put on other people’s websites (see here)
When I am not faffing about on Twitter, seeing patients, helping run a GP practice, and trying to not to get too much in the way of the raising of three children I amuse myself by going climbing (reminiscing days when I was lighter and stronger), playing guitar, painting and watching films. I have occasionally been known to record songs too. The latest song was a collaboration with all the staff at the surgery where I am a partner as a surprise leaving present for a retiring partner.
So on Friday 19th January I will be “on the decks” with a special theme: #bettercovers – cover versions of songs that are better than the originals. I’ll need lots of people to join, have fun and help raise some money for the Lullaby Trust. One of things that this charity does is help families affected by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (and the lesser-known Sudden Unexplained Death in Children) – a charity that friends of ours found a real support when their 18 month old died overnight.
