I first heard of Sir Harry Burns when he was interviewed talking  about health and inequality as part of the U.Lab course I mentioned in my new stuffjolikes blog. He was Chief Medical Officer of Scotland for many years and is now Professor of Global Heath Promotion at the University of Strathclyde. When he retired from his post as Chief Medical Officer this article about him appeared  in The Guardian  ‘We need compassion, not judgments about...
