What came through the post today...

My copy of A Precription for Alcoholics, all 550 pages of it. That should last me for a week.

And two invoices, one from Warwick hospital for £25 and one for Coventry Hospital for £50. For payment to cover the cost of sending me my patient records whilst I was there. I'm glad the fee is capped at £50, because I was at Coventry for almost two months and I hate to think how much it would be without a cap, especially as you have to go through their legal department for them.

They shall make interesting reading along with the book. That and doing the third and final tier of my Amateur radio licence (there is some serious equations, algebra and physics involved in that), should just about frazzle my brain.

      The book is about 550 pages long.

      Alcoholism and the way the industry (I use that to cover eveyone) has systematically let down patients and failed touse medication that has been available for years, been medically approved and has statistical research backing up the efficacy of them.

      The book is littered with quotes, such as:

      If you have hypertension and it flares up, you go to a specialist.

      The specialist doesn't discharge to a church basement.

      If he did, we would call it malpractice.
