What’s sauce for Mr Goose is sauce for Dr Gander

From Dr I and Mrs A Saxon, Brading:

ON THE suggestion made nationally that medical people couldask about a person’s sexuality, surely patients must be allowed to ask the samequestion of the doctor or nurse? That’s equality!

Why should a stranger know about which side you like yourbread buttered, when you know nothing about them? It should be “I’ll tell you,if you tell me first”.

We must say, if this daft idea is introduced, we see in ayear’s time, there will be increased claims by the NHS that assaults on membersof staff and it won’t take a genius to know why.

Some gay patients won’t want to say because they’re still inthe closet and so do not want any such details on their medical records. Itcould cost them their job, their marriage and their home after a routine medicalfor insurance purposes.

We also feel sure that many patients, especially if they’vehad a few pints, or are having a passionate heterosexual affair, will takeexception, after which Mr Fist may be having a close conversation with thedoctor or nurse’s temporal mandibular joint.

We can also see outraged society ladies say “How dare you!”and on the word “dare” slapping said doctor’s face in outraged indignation.

We don’t think this has been thought through objectively andit may cause more trouble for the NHS.
