Olympic Torch

 After years of planning the Olympics are finally underway. While it may only be early days in the proceedings, the event hasn’t been entirely without casualties even at this point. In one shift this week I looked after three ‘victims’ of the Olympic torch…. My first lovely lady was a proud mother patiently standing onContinue Reading

The Magic Roundabout

My first patient of the shift hopped around like he had ants in his pants as he tried to describe to me what had happened to him, so I shall call him Zebedee. Cradling his poorly right hand with his left as if it were protecting a precious Faberge egg, Zebedee put it thus; “IContinue Reading

It drives me absolutely crazy how someone can think something is serious enough to call an ambulance or visit an Accident and Emergency department without doing the slightest thing to help the situation for themselves first. Obviously I am not suggesting that whenContinue Reading

Finding it stressful at the office? Just fake it.

We were called to an office for a man of about thirty years old. We arrived to find him lying on the floor amongst a maze of desks and chairs. Concerned colleagues were on hand to inform us that he was normally a fit and well man, but that day he had been feeling veryContinue Reading
