GPs buried under trusts' workload dump

GP wins after his son eyed new iPod prize

Dr Stuart Wilkie can thank his 13-year-old son after he was chosen as the winner of Pulse's Pictures in Practice competition.

The GP in Chaddesley Corbett, Worcester, sent in a retinal detachment image after being urged on by his son, Oliver, who had his eye on the prize of an iPod.

The winning photo was taken with an old fundus camera which Dr Wilkie found in the garage of Wyre Forest PCT's medical photographer. It revealed a left upper temporal retinal detachment in the left eye of a 66-year-old woman. She had normal 6/6 vision but complained of a shadow in the eye.

Dr Wilkie, said: 'The photo was a very clear example of a retinal detachment – as good as you can get.'
