Several people kindly dropped me an email today to tell me that Andrew Lansley, the Secretary of State for Health, had been on the Today programme this morning and his stroke had been mentioned.
Apparently, at the age of 35 he also had a dissection that resulted in a stroke. His story and comments are here (and for the next week only, you could hear it on iplayer: fast forward to when the time was 07:50:25!).
So, first day at work. Relatively unremarkable. As suspected, the tricky bits of work are never the work, but the complexities of the ever changing structures and landscapes in which it sits for all.
Still, a day off tomorrow…
