GPs are 'missing opportunity' to prevent smoking-related illness
I just had to send you this consultant's letter. What was the secretary thinking and why on earth didn't she check out the last sentence?

Dear Dr Stern
I have seen this patient of yours today. His lower urinary tract symptoms have not
been resolved totally with the alpha-blocker Flomax. I think the time has come to suggest
that he have a cystoscopy and I have arranged for this to be done as an inpatient under a
general anaesthetic in view of his history of bonky ectasis.
