Last week, Dr. Philippa Whitford came to Orkney and gave a compelling talk about the impact of Brexit on the National Health Service.
It was a thought provoking event, with some chilling facts presented in a clear and informative way. Whatever your thoughts about Brexit, this is essential listening.
As well as being an MP with first hand experience of the way that Westminster works, Dr. Whitford is a surgeon with a deep understanding of the way health services work from staffing to procurement of medicines.
Listeners, some initially sceptical, were impressed by the clarity of her delivery. Although she spoke with passion, her presentation was heavy on facts and short on un-necessary drama, leaving people in no doubt about the difficulties that we are about to face.
