SIM Ep 381 Chops 163: Dr Rachel Clarke and the importance of palliative medicine

Dr Rachel Clarke is a specialist in palliative medicine, author of Dear Life: A Doctor’s Story of Love and Loss, and outspoken supporter of the NHS. In this episode, she chats to Mickey about the current state of things in the NHS, what with coronavirus, lockdown and government aides doing whatever the fuck they like, and shares some cockle-warming stories of how she’s helped people live their last days to the full, the heartbreaking story of her dad’s terminal cancer diagnosis, and some frankly horrifying stats on hospice funding.
