Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I wont whinge abt the NHS then! 8O 8O
  2. That's one of those things that makes you realise how good you've got it.

    Well that and "Do they know it's Christmas?"
  3. I bet she didn’t see that one coming… :?
  4. I bet she's just glad she didn't go in to have her Farmer Giles done.
  5. I think I may be even more diligent in checking the state of the clinical room on Monday after reading this :D

    The Science Bit:
    The ants are attracted to the high levels of glucose in the fluids produced by wounds of patients with poorly-controled diabetes.

    In-patients rely on family members staying with them in hospital to stop this sort of thing happening.
    And I mean sleeping on the floor beside their bed.
    Stepping around sleeping relatives used to be quite a common occurance for me at one point in my career 8O

    We should be grateful for some aspects of the NHS at least.
