This free course, Caring in hospitals, considers the type of care offered in hospitals, using Leeds General Hospital as a case study. The course looks at the people who have roles within the hospital, how they interact with each other and patients, and what they consider to be 'care'.

Why don’t Londoners remember 7/7 like New York remembers 9/11?

New York and London both honour those lost in terror attacks - but remember in very different ways. Victor Seidler suggests the difference in the attacks may explain why.

Mental Health: Lennox Castle

What was it like living and working in the largest mental deficiency hospital in Britain? And what changes led to its relatively recent closure? In it's heyday in the 1970s, Lennox Castle Hospital in Scotland housed over 1600 patients in purpose built multi-occupancy villas, and most staff lived on site or in nearby Lennoxtown. Oral historian Howard Mitchell started his working life there, as a member of the hospital's nursing staff. In the tracks on this album, he looks back at the history of the hospital, and talks to former patients and staff about their experiences during and after their time at Lennox Castle. He also reflects on the responsibilities of oral historians when gathering such personal testimonies. To complete the album, Professor Joanna Bornat of The Open University's Faculty of Health and Social Care explains why the case study was selected for study and unpicks some of the issues that emerge. The material forms part of The Open University course K101 An introduction to health and social care.

How to sound like an expert. There’s no shortage of people who can talk about how-many-calories-are-in-a-crisp, or give you the full run-down on the latest diets doing the rounds. But this can all sound a bit sad and over-knowledgeable, given that food should really be one of life’s great pleasures
