DOWN AT THE DOCTORS
I’m back from the antipodes and raring to go; at least for a week or two!
I see Brexit is still waiting to happen and we have an all English Champions League final (I did manage to watch the Man City/Spurs game at 7am in NZ!) On my return at 1830 on Saturday 4th May I found a novel way to deal with jet lag…..went to the beer festival, armed with saxophone, at the Prince of Wales and got home at 1am!!
Whilst away, we had a change in dispensary personnel. Lucy Trundle has left to pursue a career in another branch of the health service and we wish her well, although she may well be putting in an appearance to help us out from time to time, especially on Saturday mornings. Her replacement is Katie Munn, an experienced dispenser we poached from across the border at Princess Alexandra Hospital.
Despite being 11,000 miles away I did receive an e-mail concerning a recent case of Measles at PAH over Easter weekend. This is just one of a number of cases and NHS England will be writing to those people who have not been fully immunised. We have ordered extra vaccine.
So, back to the grindstone………
