Celebrating Yorkshire Day on 1st August

I wanted to take the opportunity to wish you a very happy Yorkshire Day!

You may not realise that I was born and bred in Yorkshire. I grew up in Hull, studied medicine in Leeds and trained as an Ophthalmologist throughout hospitals in Yorkshire, including Hull, York, Leeds and Bradford. Now working and living in York with my family, I am very proud to call this beautiful county my home. There are not many home-grown ophthalmologists who are lucky enough to work here, so I feel honoured to fly the flag!

We are very fortunate to have the Yorkshire Wolds on our doorstep and I regularly enjoy walking our dog through stunning countryside. Yorkshire beaches such as Filey, Fraisthorpe and Mappleton are favourites of ours too, and it is often easy to spot a good farm shop on the way to pick up a few sausage rolls for a picnic. We often take advantage of local produce and days out. Today we enjoyed visiting Wolds Way lavender and nature farm, a new discovery for us and well worth the visit. It’s great to see the kids’ enjoying the fresh air, having fun and exploring.

Another busy week is coming up for me, so it has been great to recharge this weekend. I really enjoy meeting patients from various parts of Yorkshire (and beyond!) and learning more about their backgrounds. So many wonderful characters and stories. I feel very privileged to be given a small glimpse into their lives and understanding how much of a big difference improving their vision can make.

For now, I will be settling down with my Yorkshire Post and a nice cup of Yorkshire tea, once I have had a Yorkshire Pudding or two with Sunday lunch…homemade of course!

Have a great week.
