Calibration rules are just a rip-off

What a rip-off, says Dr Clare Morrison

Thank you, Copperfield, for cheering me up (Calibrate this, CQC: I’m not spending £7,000 on scales).

We have just paid more than £500 to have our equipment calibrated or checked, including £26 to check a couch and £23 to calibrate a mercury sphygmomanometer (which if you think about it, is about as logical as calibrating a ruler).

What a rip-off.

Dr Clare Morrison, Havant, Hampshire
