I was really pleased to help support local Tesco store on Causewayside in their drive to help those in need with their food drive in partnership with FareShare UK.
I'm delighted that Dr Andrew Murray, accomplished athlete and leading sport & expedition doctor, and his colleague Dr Nathan Stephens have written a guest blog for my website about the importance of exercise to prevent ill-health.
Health is getting better worldwide. We might not think it, but it is. Just 200 years ago, people on average worldwide lived for 20-30 years , whilst now the average is 71 worldwide, and closer to 80 in Edinburgh. And this improvement has been helped massively by the contribution of Scots inventing antibiotics, anaesthesia, scanning machines and much more.
In 2014/15, the Citizens Advice network of dedicated staff helped nearly 274,000 people deal with over
900,000 advice issues in Scotland. At the recent #iamcitizen reception, it was great to catch up with Citizens Advice Scotland staff about the issue which constituents from Edinburgh South have raised.
