The Particular (PART007): Dr. Lister's Story

The Particular (PART007): Dr. Lister's Story

Ep.7 features Dr. Lister, who will be well known to many locally in Yateley, having been a GP in the town for 25 years, but has now been retired for 14 years. He takes the opportunity to share experiences which span at least three continents, having previously spent time after university in southern Africa (where he once had breakfast with a young Robert Mugabe!); having been a medical missionary in India; and worked as surgeon in Sweden & Denmark, before returning to the UK to become a GP in the 1980s.

An over-riding thread to emerge from his reflections are his concern for everyone to be able recognise what love really is, and to be able to find it! “When you are in love, things get transformed. And this is one of the main guiding lights of my life, that you have to be in love, and you can sort of cultivate this way of looking at life,” he enthuses. “If you are in love, everything can be lovely.”
