This slightly odd edition of the Denmark doctor is focused on psychopaths and psychopathy.
Apart from the first half dozen editions of the newsletters the Denmark Doctor has not been a typical General Practice newsletter which should inform about the practice and various health matters. Ideally it should complement the care given by the doctors and nurses. I gave up that idea a long time ago because, well it was simply a little too boring to write about, and if it was boring to write it’s going to be boring to read.
General practice is changing.
Throughout my career the average GP has changed from being a full time male doctor who is a partner of his own practice to a female part time doctor who is an employee of a practice.
…. however its very strange that it seems to come earlier and earlier every year.
Regular readers are aware that I try to cover some seasonal issues to celebrate the festive season. Over the years the Denmark Doctor has had quizzes, jokes, puzzles and even pantomimes. This year is no exception with a selection of awful Christmas cracker jokes and a stay health this Christmas quiz which comes on the back of last months 10 superfoods.
Actually if you work in the NHS you won’t be in the least bit surprised because we seem to be forever navel gazing and reviewing things.
I remember a long time ago being entertained by the excellent Hamlet cigar adverts.
I think the hapless balding chap with an awful comb over trying to get his passport photo taken is just about the most memorable advert ever.
****, ***?!!, *** etc etc – I’ve started the week off badly.
Four letter words have been issuing forth from my office after learning about the government’s latest brainchild. Naming and shaming GPs who fail to diagnose cancer!!!!!
I’ve been reading a few articles recently about how to sell things.
Don’t worry I’m not contemplating a change of career it was just a matter of idle curiosity of my wandering mind (or should that be wondering mind).
