Following the recent heinous abuse of apostrophes, the Care Quantity Commission have today announced the latest in a line of measures to inspect poor spelling and grammar in the notes of general practitioners. With our increased funding we will now extract all data from electronic notes with the help of HSCICIC and run them through a spell checker.
A spokesman released this statement:
“We were get increasing numbers of complaints, sometimes as many as 3 per year nationally, from patients copied into referral letters, or should I say referrla? If doctors don’t have the time or inclination to type properly or spell check their entries, then perhaps they should consider a different career? Sloppy spelling and grammar represents sloppy care.”
If the Genital Pacifiers Committee could spell “incandescent” they would have made a press release. But they couldn’t and they didn’t.
More when we have it…
