Thanks Dove, I will use my contacts to find out whether the hospital has contacted them.

You are right, in that I am concerned about whether I do have a duty of care in such situations. Very far removed from ICU and the things I have any knowledge of.

Thanks Obelixx, you have raised my worries about this, I am going to have to give it serious thought.

Hi all.

Back from dentist, with a numb mouth.

Neighbours not bothered to come round to say anything about last night, but I know they discharged the lad.

hang on in there DD., a game of cat and mouse I think.

Larium is the baddie, Hosta.

What about the wonderful idea, mooted on Radio 4 this morning that we should send Farage to negotiate with Trump?

Well, he won but.....

What a story Pansy.

That is what politics is about in my eyes.

I am incredibly proud of our welfare state.

The NHS and state education are also things we should cherish.

I was regarded as odd by some colleagues, because I would not do private medicine.

I don't have kids, but I hope I would have state schooled them, it worked ok. for me.

I have to take Doxycycline as malarial prophylaxis, but that is due to psychiatric type problems with Larium and resistance to Malarone in some of the places I have visited.

A very interesting thing has just happened. Most of you know about my neighbour problems, well about 2 hours ago loud knock on the door, 13 year old son of NDNs standing there, "I feel really ill, can you help"

Got him in, had a chat and a quick exam, found his heart rate was about 170, also realised he stank of dope.

Asked where his mum was, he didn't know and she wasn't answering her phone, any way I decided he needed an ambulance, although by the time they arrived, he was settling down.

Saddest thing was, when I asked him, he was quite open about using dope.

I didn't go with the ambulance as I was happy he was getting better.

Am now awaiting repercussions.

Well, he won but.....

Absolutely brilliant pansyface,beautifully written. That should be how the system works, sadly I am not sure that it does anymore.

Having worked in a US hospital, where it appeared to me at least, that if you could not afford insurance, then you did not get health care, I am alarmed by the proposed changes. As an outsider I thought Obama care was a massive step forward.

Re: abortion, I have to agree with Obelixx, I don't think I should have a say, it must be a woman's right to choose.

Leaf mould

As all of the above, except that I do try to use some of the leaves to make "proper" mould, for my special woodland plants and the Meconopsis which seem to like it.

This does seem to take at least 2 years, sometimes 3, so mostly just do as others on here.

Can I be cheeky Hosta and ask which anti-malarials you take, professional curiosity and because I am always taking them for various trips.
