Doc­tor, slip a present on pre­scrip­tion for me

Scottish Daily Mail - - Comment -

DUR­ING the big freeze of 2010 I spent many a treach­er­ous day tip­py­toe­ing along icy pave­ments at the speed of an asth­matic ant in an at­tempt not to end up on my pos­te­rior.

It was only when a friend rec­om­mended a set of snow grips you can fix to your shoes to stop you fall­ing over, that I made any of my ap­point­ments even re­motely on time. Given that more than 80 peo­ple queued up at the Queen El­iz­a­beth Univer­sity Hospi­tal in Glas­gow this week af­ter com­ing a crop­per on ice, per­haps it’s time us clumsy types were is­sued some­thing like this on pre­scrip­tion.
