Pulse reporters spend many a happy hour trawling through LMC newsletters, and the following offering from Suffolk LMC was the stand-out entry of 2011

‘The mother of a young woman has complained that we have asked to see her daughter (age 16) before prescribing a pill to alter her menstrual cycle so her daughter can go to the prom at the end of the month. The GP has asked to see her before prescribing it. The complaint is that the daughter is too busy and ‘also having dress, hair and make-up appointments' so could ‘do without being messed around by the surgery'.'

Now, please try and remember, the patient is always right.
