NHS breakthrough - increased funding justified!

Glennis Middleton accidentally drank some anti-freeze and was rushed to hospital. The National Health Service was fully up to the challenge:
Doctors at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee told her that alcohol was the antidote and gave her a choice of gin, vodka or whisky.
Being Scotland, she chose the whisky.


Doctors stress that the correct dose has to be given and blood levels monitored thereafter.
Most Scots are quite able to calculate the "correct dose" without medical intervention. Nevertheless, we must hail this breakthrough in medical treatment.

A happy new year to all readers. Keep taking the whisky but cut down on the anti-freeze.
