Does the expert witness have to get his facts right?
Or would Sir Samuel Meadow actually be Professor Sir Roy Meadow?
It's "Holistic", not "Wholistic"
What is the world coming to?
The definition of Macho is the man who jogs home afterwards.
Unless Flossie is very, VERY thin, I suspect that she takes up a number of cubic feet
Many GP surgeries ( including my own) allow patients full read-only access to their full medical records
Half an hour!
Cigarette and cuppa included, I presume?
.... the playmobile
To Charles 9

Please send pictures.... I think it would be difficult to do this in Playmobil, unless the moderatrix would like to prove me wrong... please?
It wasn't that sack that I was referring to
Can I be the first to say...?
... that I want my surgeon to be human.
At least they understand the required delicacy of this sort of surgery, and they know that if there's a single mistake, they get the sack.
I would now like to dissociate myself from the above comment
It wasn't just NHS.net that was blocked
My Forename.Surname@GP-Exxxxxx.nhs.uk email account was also blocked from sending emails to Hotmail.
I'd like to think it was Microsoft's incompetence, but the NHS can usually beat them for incompetence.
WTF does "it will leave potential bruising" mean? Either it leaves bruising or it doesn't (I think I know the answer)... and then there's the more sinister possibility that "...and it could cause a contusion." When I did my medical degrees, there was no difference. Those of you with access to a dictionary could possibly confirm this. If tasering the spokesman has done this to his brain, what will the taser do to the human body?
Here are much better qualifications
Take a look at this one.
I have the certificate for my Ph.D. in Arse -elbow differentiation on the wall at work....the only sad thing is that the AQA site isn't a joke!
We are all doomed
How about the difference between Ensure ( = make certain) and Insure ( take a policy out with an Insurance company)? Despite the fact that even our transatlantic throwers of tea parties don't talk about Ensurance companies, they still struggle with this one.
There's that wonderful line in Mary Poppins where Mr Banks says that throwing the tea overboard made the tea undrinkable, even for the Americans
BTW, those people across the pond speak the word "route" as if rhymes with "doubt", which probably explains their problems with the word "Cisco"
...how many are on contract at Gordon Brown's OTHER residence?
He may be flipping phones as well as addresses
If you go to BP and do the tour, you will hear that the valves were acquired every time a BT exchange was upgraded .... BT would tell them and they'd go and pillage the exchange. I believe that Bletchley Park have enough in stock for a number of decades
Off label ?!
Not off label at all. The British National Formulary says quite clearly under Indications and dose:
"Anxiety with symptoms such as palpitation, sweating, tremor, 40 mg once daily, increased to 40 mg 3 times daily if necessary"
Section 4.1.2 on Anxiolytics says
"Beta-blockers (e.g. propranolol, oxprenolol) (section 2.4) do not affect psychological symptoms, such as worry, tension, and fear, but they do reduce autonomic symptoms, such as palpitation and tremor; they do not reduce non-autonomic symptoms, such as muscle tension. Beta-blockers are therefore indicated for patients with predominantly somatic symptoms; this, in turn, may prevent the onset of worry and fear. Patients with predominantly psychological symptoms may obtain no benefit."
It sounds like entirely appropriate prescribing to me... most other anxiolytics are of the same family as Valium
Been there and got the....?
Sorry, couldn't resist
Where's the Playmobil re-enactment of this deed?
There is a story ...
...that a GP once had to persuade Mr & Mrs Janus not to call their son Hugh.
Who cares if it's true, it's such a nice story
