Salaried GP spells trouble

Patients sometimes joke with me about my handwriting because they can actually read it. I usually respond by reassuring them I really am a doctor.

So far the readability of my handwriting has not damaged the doctor-patient relationship ­ but perhaps the PCT will not take such a benign view. An advertisement in Pulse (August 11) reads: 'Salaried GP... Golden Hello if illegible...'
