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:

    His next visit to his GP / local hospital should be fun.
     
  2. The GMC is now overdue to be replaced with something a little more independant. Some of its rulings/justifications seem to imply its a doctor's right to practice medicine, regardless of how safe they are, and to protect the public by suspending would be totally wrong if it meant they had to lose their jobs.....
     
  3. They are more dangerous than Army chefs...
     
  4. But not as dangerous as an occifer with a map and a compass!!!!!!
     
  5. in defense of the NHS, some of the dead are quite deliberate...removal from the gene pool and all that!! We don't just MOAN about chavs, we irradiate them!
     
  6. I'm sure they are under instructions to bump off as many as they can.

    Think I'll stick to Nurofen and a tubigrip.
     
  7. and how many are treated well, cured and sent home with no complications? A damn sight more.

    Medicine is the only profession that puts such a great capacity for causing harm into the hands of men, with the implicit trust that they know what they're doing. In that vast majority of cases, they do.

    However, I agree that some doctors have no right to still be practising. Funnily enough, very few, if any, of them are British. But I'm not allowed to say that out loud.
