Thoroughly Burnt Out
Ready by September, so entirely filled through clearing as too late for UCAS?
What is so difficult about the word "Steroids" that nobody can spell it correctly?

The smoking rules must be amended - If I see a new patient today & record that they are an ex smoker & stopped 30yr ago (I presume all clinical systems can record date stopped), why on earth should I have to ask them for each of the next 2 years to see if they have reastarted? More often than not, they don't attend one year & the clock starts again - a total waste of time & it makes us look stupid in the eyes of the patient.
There is some clinical sense to asking about erectile dysfunction, but are we to do this annually? What about the older man who admits to it & says he is not interested in remedying the situation? Is it clinically justifiable to humiliate him annually by asking again? A lifetime exception should apply once a patient declines.
