Medicine north of the wall.



One of the team recounted a conversation they had had with a relative who lives way up North in some of the now darker reaches of Northernshire. As any GP knows whenever you talk to a family member or friend they immediately think that you want to hear about their latest brush with illness or the NHS. This conversation was no different and it went something like this:

"I went to the doctor who was really good. They were English. They started by talking to me and asking questions about my illness. When they had finished they examined me and then told me what they thought was wrong before giving me some treatment. Not like the other (local) GPs."

An interesting observation which got us thinking how else does one do general practice? Clearly our relative had noticed a difference in their part of Northernshire large enough to comment on it.

Perhaps this is why 2 previous Prime Ministers hate GPs so much for they have never done it the English way before?

Praise be to the Party for giving us a National Health Service of 4 nation’s health services. Is there any St Patrick out there that can explain the current 4 leaved sham(rock) that is the NHS to us simple believers? Will it be any simpler (better) after the “reforms"?

surprisingly! It’s like you understand my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some images to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog. A good read. I’ll certainly be back.
