Scottish Independence Podcast 171 – Dr Philippa Whitford

800px-Official_portrait_of_Dr_Philippa_Whitford_crop_2The 171st episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is mostly a speech by Dr Philippa Whitford (a previous guest on the show). I’m sure you do, but just in case you didn’t know, Dr Whitford MP is an SNP MP but before her time in politics she was a consultant breast surgeon, one who also worked as part of UN mission in Gaza and even a couple of years ago went to the West Bank to operare on four women suffering from Breast Cancer.

The speech, principally about the Scottish Health service, was at Clermiston and is reproduced here courtesy of Independence Live.

At the end of the speech I left the Q & A section in because most of the questions from the floor were, I imagine, exactly the ones the majority of listeners to this podcast would have asked, and she also gave some good responses.

Finally, before that main course of the podcast begins, I put in a little starter when it seemed, just for a second, that the BBC was going to go somewhere it never ever goes.

Hope you enjoy.

The Scottish Independence Podcast 94 – Philippa Whitford

PhillipaWhiteford720For the 94th episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I spoke to Philippa Whitford.

Philippa is an NHS doctor and has been making some of the best speeches of the entire Independence Campaign.

Specifically she has been outlining why the Scottish NHS is more than just under threat if there is a No vote, it is in fact in serious trouble.

In the podcast we talked about why that is the case but we also talked about the broader independence campaign and what we thought Yes activists can do to push us over the line.

Finally, as ever, I asked my guest their personal reasons for supporting Scottish Independence.

Hope you enjoy…
