Once upon a time: I was a GP with a particular interest in communication between Dr and Patient. The Seventh edition of the Doctor’s Communication Handbook was published three years ago, and the eighth edition is commissioned for 2019 . I fill my time with photography, trying not to support Sunderland AFC, helping Judy, gardening and writing stories, Ghosts being favourite. The Irish folk tale, The Seanachai: the storyteller’s story is enjoying some success on Amazon (published under pseudonym of Padraigh Etat. ) The Curatage Ghost, now completed, but filming for grandchildren with props etc. still in progress.
