Warfarin and biopsy continued

Hello again, just to update you. I happened to meet the clinical director of the Acute Trust responsible for Breast Care. I told him about the stupidity of not being able to have a biopsy without a recent INR and he started giving me some spiel about why they couldn't have all these extra machines etc etc. so I said, well why don't you include it in the advise on the appointment letter, he looked stunned and said, what a really good idea, I will get that introduced. So hopefully, a success!

Well done! Nice when the patient can see the wood when everyone else is looking at the trees.

Well done! It's amazing that they've never thought of that themselves!

That is why he is a senior health official . No brain to hamper his work! Do they never think things through!

The worse people to give instructions are the people that know how to do it.
