Well, we made it through another 365 days. Phew. That’s something to be grateful for. It’s sometimes hard to remember that every day is a good day. But the New Year is a good time to reset the clock, get some perspective and recommit to being good – whatever “good” means to you. The golden rule is always a solid way to go. “Do unto others as you would have them do to you” Treating people well is an excellent strategy for being treated well yourself. Its win-win whatever way you look at it.

One of the best things about endeavouring to treat our patients well here at Jackson’s (we’re not perfect but we try) is that our patients treat us very well too. In the run up to Christmas we were inundated with chocolates and biscuits, most of which, I have to say, were devoured before I got as much as a sniff of them! Treating people well is good for us all – that is my New Year’s message. Wishing you all the very best for 2019!
