OUR DORA'S ANTIDOTES
"Humour is often the best medicine"
THIS WEEKS DIARY IS BY A LOCAL AUTHORITY POLICY OFFICER
Monday - Have been invited to an all day seminar by our new strategic health authority. Not sure what to expect but the event appears to be well attended by all sorts of local health and social services luminaries. Needless to say i recognise none of them. I glaze over when the first presentation begins: "I'm here to discuss with you the synergies and tensions, in the form of both threats and opportunities, and the critical interface between localised, community based primary care services and clustered, focused secondary and acute provision." What? Answers on a postcard please.
"This framework for establishing patient/client interface needs to be constructive enabling us to hear views that might not otherwise be heard so influencing the strategic direction and dayexperience of clients/patients."
THAT'S QUOTE ENOUGH OF THAT....
"The inspector pointed out a cracked mirror. The manager said he would
look into it."
The above were from Community Care Magazine. If you come across any funny Jargon or gobbledegook from local sources, Please send them in for us to Share.
