I've had a day and a half in East Grinstead today. In addition to driving for more than two hours through the kind of rising water levels rarely seen outside Western Samoa, I've met a variety of interesting people, most of whom wanted to complain about things which had nothing to do with me. Two of them weren't even my patients. And one of them chased me down a corridor just to register her grievance. I wouldn't mind, but she was eighty-eight and I couldn't outrun her.

But aside from acting like the East Grinstead branch of ACAS all day, I've met a lady who has to wear a leg brace after she trod on a three-pin plug in her bare feet, an octogenarian American from Washington state who's just moved to West Sussex (go figure), and a man who told me he's going into hospital on October 29th for a major operation on his knee. I replied "So no trick-or-treating for you this year then!". He didn't smile. I felt slightly awkward.

But the highlight of my day was when I bid farewell to one of my patients and she walked out of the door with the cheerful words "Have a good Christmas!". I might do my next clinic in a Santa hat.
