“After decades in print publishing I should have had enough. But the mad hatter slash masochist hiding within gets a giddy rush from connecting with a new online audience and with the myriad possibilities of a digital platform. The web is the entry to Wonderland – rife with information, and views that telescope from big to tiny. It allows us at MedHatter to teeter between serious and frivolous because, honestly, who wants to visit a site that doesn’t make you smile. Some silliness is good for the health which is what is all about. While we distil hard medical facts and gather health info, we hope both health professionals and regular folk will lend their voices to a community of clarity and exchange. And fun of course.”
