Timely warning for dictators

From Dr PA Coleman Ventnor, Isle of Wright

I was amused to read these annotations at the bottom of a recent discharge summary:

Date dictated 24/08/05.

Date typed 05/12/05.

There followed the note: 'Dictated, not read or signed to avoid delay.'

I presume the irony is lost on the secretary!
