Doctors get cancer too: hearing from healthcare professionals

Most of us are used to talking to healthcare professionals about our cancer but we don't usually talk to them about *their* cancer.  In this podcast, we hear about what it's like to go from being the person giving a diagnosis to being the one who receives it. 

Hannah, a GP, shares how she received the news of her brain tumour while at work with a waiting room full of people. Simon, a pediatrician, explains how he navigates how much of his own experience to share while at work. Mari, gynaecologist, was shocked at how other doctors often failed to acknowledge the impact of their words. And Mari's husband, Babur, a surgeon, talks about how he goes to work to fix others but the person he really wants to be able to fix is his wife.
