MPs discuss the impact of A Mile in My Shoes at Parliament

January 15, 2020


From the 31st October to the 3rd November the Health Foundation and Empathy Museum are exhibiting their immersive experience A Mile in My Shoes at the Houses of Parliament – It was a really powerful experience to walk in somebody else’s shoes. My particular pair of shoes belonged to a young general practitioner and she spoke about her life, she spoke about the pressures that obviously we all know are bearing down on GPs But what came through was a vibrancy and a love of her profession I was very grateful to be allowed to walk a mile in Suddy’s shoes. – What I was reminded of is how people’s own human experience and their own life experience comes through into the way they practice clincally. I listened to a midwife. She talked about the warmth and the real love of her job. It’s reminded me that I need to remember I’ve had three children and remember the three midwives that did make it such a valuable experience for me. So a good reminder and a lovely story.
