Who was in the list?
Was Mike Hunt included?
A database screw-up saw 2,056 Swedish men ordered to report to their gynecologists and midwives for smear tests. Health officials in Stockholm County and the island of Gotland are mailing the men to tell them to disregard the missive, The Local reports. Meanwhile midwives are "briefed and ready' on how to deal with any …
Exact same thing happened to me many years ago in the UK (NHS). I didn't get a letter of apology, all I got was the receptionist telling me that she would pass on to the nurse that I am male.
General consensus amongst people I tell is that I should have shown up. Given how reluctant the NHS is to see you these days I think they have a point. You need to take every opportunity you can get.
Cervices free at the point of delivery.
Someone should turn up as an Amish-style Gotland "farmer" and "demand satisfaction" for his tax money, just for laughs, or a bet, the pain might be worth it if he can sit down and get some beers after ;) Nurse, Mr Juntti is here for his appointment-his family are originally from Finland so he wont understand you very much, sorry dear! Check your "what?"
I went to renew my driver's license. When I got home, I noticed that they'd changed me to an "F". Mustache and all. It's one of those data fields you wouldn't think would be changeable...but you'd be wrong. When I next renewed the license, I said nothing, to see if the would notice. Nope.
The third time, I mentioned it. I was a bit nervous that I might (as advised in the renewal notice) be required to show proof before they would make the change. Thankfully for all concerned, that wasn't required.
I should mention, that I had several encounters with the police during the years I was driving with an "F" license (during at least one of these encounters, the license was "run" through the computer). Nothing was said about it, and I didn't get ticketed, either!
Still have the license in a drawer somewhere...
> Nothing was said about it, and I didn't get ticketed, either!
On the assumption that on a least one of the encounters that you might have been liable for a ticket, then I think it was unwise to change on the basis that the police might have been using "positive discrimination".
They could use this to get the screening rates for colon, bowel and prostate cancer up.
Just send the men to the "other" room with an apology and "well it needed to be done anyway, saves calling you back later"...
Oh, and apparently the screening procedure for prostate is a 5 minute procedure, ffs don't die of embarassment peoples.
