Yesterday, (2nd June 2014) I published what I believed to be a heart-felt recommendation for Suzan Collins’ book “Beyond my Control”
Those who know me, which is most of you reading this blog, will know that I would never knowingly offend or upset anyone and that compassion is one of my most prized characteristics both in myself and others.
I was, therefore, distressed to find the following on Twitter.
While I am still a little unsure as to exactly what caused this outrage, I am publishing a full apology to Victoria Smith and anyone else, especially Suzan Collins if they were offended by my piece. I offered to delete my post but other readers have asked me to leave it as they found it compassionate and instructive.
I will, however, repeat that the book is excellent. I still think it should be required reading for anyone dealing with the NHS.
Once again, Victoria Smith, I am deeply sorry to have caused you such rage.
