Qwizdom and Taxis
It is a lovely sunny evening and I have just returned from an engagement event with the shadow CCG Calleva. They did a nice presentation which included a film of their vision and then asked us all sorts of questions which we had to answer using the hand held Qwizdom devices while the results appeared on the screen in front of us. I am not a fan of this style of engagement as they never seem to present me with the answer I want to give as one of the options. On the other hand I am inspired to make a film about HLP now as I can see it is a good way to engage people’s interest and use strong visuals to get across messages. I don’t want to spend any money so my challenge is to find someone who needs to make a film (for their 3rd undergraduate project?) to which I can offer HLP as the subject! Any aspiring movie makers please get in touch.
As I signed in this afternoon I noticed the name before mine was Sir George Young MP. I spotted him taking a seat in the back row so I headed over. Many years ago he and I once shared a taxi when we found ourselves at Waterloo station when it was struck by lightning. It looked pretty hopeless and I was just pondering the availability of a suitable sofa to surf on when a calm voice said “I am going to take a taxi to Basingstoke, would anyone care to join me?” Our brave band consisted of Sir George, the owner of a very very high class jewellers in Bond street, a lady in HR somewhere in the City and me. We spent a very enjoyable few hours together and I learned a lot about expensive jewellery. When we parted company in Basingstoke I paid my very modest contribution of £26 and Sir George’s wife gave me a lift the rest of the way home. Any way as I introduced myself he remembered our little jaunt and me!! Apparently he had written about it for a local paper shortly after! It is a wonderfully quirky world and of course he now knows so much more about community pharmacy than he did this morning. I have to say he is an absolute gentleman and one of those people you just can’t help but like.
