The GP’s need for those online systems, good turkeys and Edward Hoare in the Random 19.


As the first episode of the month, it’s the front section this week – Ed’s letter, the lead feature stories and the Random 19:

  • In her letter from the editor, Laura is wondering where all the grown ups went (and she apologises for galloping through slightly – this was her fifth attempt at getting through the paragraph about Pog without needing to stop and gulp a little)
  • NHS Dorset is investing in technology to improve care for the population – sometimes unpopular, it has become necessary in order to cope with demand. 
  • If you think your traditional turkey is a dry, under-flavoured, over-rated bird, then you might want to change where you buy it. We spoke to some local turkey farmers for an inside look at the industry, and their top turkey tips.
  • Letters to the Editor – listen to what others think (our postbag is always open – send emails to )
  • Edward Hoare is a philanthropist and environmentalist – born at Stourhead, he is a direct descendant of Sir Richard Hoare, who founded Hoare’s Bank in 1672. As a bonus for podcast listeners, you can listen to Edward’s interview and hear his answers for yourself, rather than the edited version that appears in the magazine.
