Dr. Malcolm Kendrick

Here is an imagined, but not far off the truth, conversation between a doctor and a patient.

‘Why can’t I have T3 doctor? I feel so much better when I do?’

‘Because I say so, now go away.’

In the UK it is also a very rapid way of failing the GP entrance exams. We are told that we must explore the patients’ expectations, listen to their worries and fears, and work with them in partnership to lead to a therapeutic partnership…. or some such left wing bollocks.

Her very beautiful colours will shine on the people and her wonderful altruistic manner will send out signals that will make you question as to what she really stands for! She will bring out the cleaver and she will slam you down if she doesn’t get what she expects and wants but as more and more question will she receive a back lash and viewed as badly neglected slammed down unicorn or will she be like a black beauty strolling through the mud and making neigh mare mistakes and become the chief night mare to the witch doctors? Only then will people see what is going to happen next with almighty lowreinge Cleever! All my greetings to you from creative expressive writer Ashley of Paisley 🙂 a creative writer!

    • Have you left Paisley for Berkshire Ashley? 😉

      I’m not the champion of any community, I’m challenging for my own health. If others are helped, great. What’s your story and how are you making things better?
