A Resolution

To never ever refer to any other student as a "non-medic". The FM would hate to be referred to as the "non-historian" or the "non-midwife," so saying this ends here.

The FM has left the placed she has trained to go home for the weekend


Apologies for the distinct lack of posting but the FM has recently finished one placement and started another. She is now based in a place where there is little/no internet.

Anyway, here is something to keep you going, what is the Triple T ratio about? More commonly used in A&E

What a week

Some of you may have heard of newsthumps, a spoof newswebsite introduced to me by Dr Zorro. Thank you.

The best article there this week was one saying how youths were so bored that they had turned to reading books.

The FM was going to go out this week. She did not as a result of the rioting.

There is no excuse for the violence. I sometimes think it is more disturbing seeing people excusing the rioting as there are not enough youth services.
