The best interviews I do are with ordinary people in extraordinary situations, writes Helen Puttick Health Correspondent of The Herald
I am being genuine, therefore, when I write that I felt lucky to spend last Thursday lunchtime with Gordon Ross, a grandfather from Glasgow. He has Parkinson’s disease, among other health problems and, as The Herald reported on Monday, he is launching Scotland’s first court case seeking the right for help to end his life.
There have been cases in England before, but not in Scotland, so this former civil servant with a good head for figures is doing something extraordinary.
