ABOUT CRAZY SOCKS
The day came out of response that the founder Dr Geoff Toogood experienced when he wore odd coloured socks to work.
The talk behind his back was he was failing again but in reality he was well and his socks apart from the last two odd socks had been eaten by his new puppy .
Rather than start a discussion about was he ok, he heard of behind the scenes whispering .
He started the day as an attempt to address the stigma and to make it ok for a Doctor not to be ok .
