  • The debate was aired on the programme here http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b088jwhr/spotlight-evening-news-19012017  from 12.25 and then after the programme it was streamed live to Facebook. Over 300 comments were received from people watching and the debate was shared over 50 times.

    I have to say although initially nervous I really enjoyed it.  I managed to almost destroy a microphone which then required a technician to fix it after getting it lost under my dress and then drank far too much water which made me uncomfortable, but how great to give my views on a service I feel so passionately about, in such a public forum!

    Also spent the day scrutinising health services at the Health and Wellbeing Scrutiny Committee, which I will blog on tomorrow.
