Well, it's been just over a month since I started my new job editing the Journal of Family Health Care/School Health and our newly launched website. To say it's been a steep learning curve would be an understatement... but it's also been lots of fun.

As a journalist with a health background I already appreciated how topical the health agenda is. But it came as a surprise to realise just how much front page coverage there's already been about issues affecting health visitors, midwives, school nurses and other frontline health professionals who work with families today. Midwife shortages, controversy about childhood obesity, the right time to wean, vaccines... they've all been at the forefront of peoples' minds and editors' agendas.

Hold the front page, readers, because it's YOU setting the agenda!
