    NHS Junior Doctors Industrial Action

    It's probably time to open up this particular issue. NHS Junior Doctors are taking industrial action for the first time in 40 years. So, is it ever right for medical staff to take this sort of action? The BBC took a poll very recently to see what patients' views towards this action were. Two...

    Junior doctors row: 98% vote in favour of strikes

    The title says it all. For a 98% vote to have occurred here the junior doctors must be pretty upset. Lets hope there is a bit of sense here from both sides and arbitration can sort it out. At the moment that looks pretty unlikely. I'm not certain, but I believe this is the first time in the...

    Further to my Memory Lane post on Sheffield United cup games I've had an enquiry about one of players Walden (don't know his first name yet) which is amazing, it means someone has read my post :smile: Anyway I'm doing some research into the player and thought I would post it up for all to...

    Can the Government find the money to pay for a truly seven day NHS?

    The question is in the title and my national newspaper carried a full one page notice from the BMA posing the question. Rather than reproduce the ad, the website is below: www.bma.org.uk/working-for-change/doctors-in-the-nhs/seven-day-services/show-us-your-plan If you're interested, have a...

    League One Backroom Staff

    Someone posted that we have a big backroom staff so I thought I would contrast and compare. Ive removed physios/doctors and youth/academy coaches, masseurs and kit managers for clarification. Basically, yeah we could do with more backroom staff. Barnsley Head Coach - Lee Johnson Assistant...
  7. Head Injuries

    Lost count how many times those ******s faked head injuries today. Time for a rule change, if you have a head injury then you leave the field for a minimum of 5 minutes and need doctors clearance to re-enter play !!!!!!!!

    You heard it here first, sort of!!

    I was at the doctors surgery today picking up a prescription and got talking to the receptionist. Not sure how the conversation got round to football but it turns out that her husband is RMs driver. The receptionist was adamant that according to her husband work on Fossetts Farm will start soon...

    My Aunt's Boyfriend

    I thought I'd tell you all a story. My uncle (my mum's brother) died in 2001. He had a heart transplant in around 1989-1990 and his new heart was finally rejected about 12 years on. He had got to a point where he was on the strongest anti-rejection drugs possible, so there was nothing more the...

  19. Legalise drugs article.

    Taken from the New Scientist, fascinating article that I totally agree with. I know it's an age old topic on here but it's a slow day. Far from protecting us and our children, the war on drugs is making the world a much more dangerous place. SO FAR this year, about 4000 people have died in...
