ABSTRACT: A network of autonomous Daily Communal Restaurants (DCRs) serving bulk-cooked, affordable, nutritious food would cultivate deep community spirit and generate far-reaching benefits. 2020 brought us widespread isolation, atomisation and disunity. To capitalise on a common urge to make up for lost time and repair wounds, DCRs can bring people together by recreating long-lost communityContinue reading “Daily Communal Restaurants can bring communities back together, stronger than ever, improving lives, ending poverty”

We could fix this problem by mobile laboratories which are easy to assemble, affordable and able to greatly increase testing capacity. Laboratories are built within shipping containers, then shipped to the designated country. Once in the country, the mobile lab can be transported by trucks to provide testing in areas with less hospitals or areasContinue reading
Summary – now is the time for the UK population to become “pharmacy-literate”!
The experience of the pandemic provides an unprecedented opportunity for engaging the public in a concerted education and information campaign to explain the role of medicines and vaccines: how they are developed, used, regulated and monitored for safety. The aim would be to create a “pharmacy-literate” public. A parallel could be drawn with efforts toContinue reading “Summary – now is the time for the UK population to become “pharmacy-literate”!”
We Desperately Need To Rediscover The ‘Great’ In Great Britain!
As individuals we are weary, feeling down trodden, almost beaten and all in all we are rather lacking in hope. As a nation we have almost been torn apart by Brexit, and for a year now, hammered by the pandemic.

Distance Learning: A Core Educational Provision Addressing Urgent Learning Gaps and the Ongoing Achievement Deficit.
Distance Learning (“DL”) should be funded across all our primary and secondary schools. Essentially, the staffing and funding of this should be carried out by treating DL as an additional subject to be delivered through existing structures.

Harness computer games to further education
There is a challenge in encouraging children to engage with on-line learning whilst they are easily attracted to on-line games. Use the technology and the structure of the games to facilitate learning. An example might be to include in the “football team management” game the need to understand fractions, percentages and probabilities in choosing playerContinue reading “Harness computer games to further education”
Integration of Citizen’s Assemblies as a formal part of UK governing structures
There are at least two deep-rooted issues evident in UK life which this suggestion could significantly help to alleviate. Those issues being: (1) Increasing polarisation of the electorate and parliament on many issues due to the lack of proportional representation, vested interests of mainstream media barons, social media, capture of government by industrial lobby groupsContinue reading “Integration of Citizen’s Assemblies as a formal part of UK governing structures”
Improving the way that GPs operate and building up a comprehensive health database.
GPs have extended the use of triage and phone and video consultations during the pandemic. I assume that, in the same way as different drugs were trialled to see which worked best to counteract the disease, these different practices are being evaluated to see what woks best for which patients and which diagnoses. There hasContinue reading “Improving the way that GPs operate and building up a comprehensive health database.”
