Again a BBC Radio 4 programme has caught my attention this week. I didn’t listen to it… I rarely do listen live to Radio 4 but they have great podcasts. So this week I was drawn to BBC Radio 4’s PM programme which has been looking at this question. Can community projects offer a way to affordable care? The link goes to a BBC web page that looks at this topic. Right at the bottom of the article, you will find a link to the podcasts. There are 4 at the moment. None are longer than about 10 minutes and worth a dip into particularly once you have read the web page. To listen to them go to Radio 4 PM podcasts
