Excellent piece, had a similar case last week. You will make a greak GP, wish you all the very best.
I totally agree with you as always and with David Burton on this one, this is my usual practice as well, (include all the information on the request form) and it works very well.
This just hits the nail on the head...
I look forward to read your blog, I find it very inspiring. You seem to be getting stronger each time and hope this continues.
Wish you and your family increasing strength in this journey.
When I read this yesterday I was too touched to be able to write anything. You are so brave to share this with us. I do hope you stay strong and carry on, you'll find solace in the patients you help.
So very sorry for your loss, my sincere condolences to you and your children.
So very poignant, I am sorry for your loss.
I did not have the privilege of meeting Professor Alan Maynard but still remember the advice of my trainer (late eighties in Yorkshire), he is the man to watch out for as he is the greatest predictor of how the NHS is going to evolve economically...
Sincere condolences to his family.
Very interesting, reminds me of 2 similar cases I saw a few years ago.
Both are doing well, having stopped smoking and modified their alcohol intake.
Prompt referral may have helped with their outcome.
This is so very true.
