People talking today about the British NHS and efforts by the American government to "free up" entry for their multi-national drug companies:

made me remember people I used to work with, who moved to the UK. Probably of no interest to anyone :-) but I thought I'd go look 'em up.

Terry Findlay used to be my local community health director, back in the early 90's. He's now in Glasgow, running Primary Care:

Martin Fletcher was my Team Leader back in 1988:

Pretty nice guys, both of them. When I knew Martin, he was doing a Masters - something about "locus of control" and how that influenced people's perceptions of what they could do themselves to improve their health status.

Oh, it's a long way from __ ______ Community Health, though!
