Phil's hard to swallow
From Julie Rowlinson
Practice admin/IT manager
I take issue with Phil Peverley's views on patients who don't take tablets (Columnists, June 29). This has nothing to do with bravery or being soft, it is a genuine problem for some patients.
My husband has no problem dealing with pain, stitches without anaesthetic or serious injuries, but give him the smallest of tablets and he retches violently.
Is it Dr Peverley's job to belittle people or to help them? I'm glad we aren't registered at his practice!
