New Slant on Doctor's Bed-side MannersFunny Doctor's advice

'Every GP [General Practitioner - Doctor] is to be instructed to tell fat patients that they should lose weight, putting doctors in the front line of a new offensive to tackle Britain's growing obesity problem, 'records The Times on May 3rd 2006.'  In future GPs will have to treat obesity as if it were any other medical condition and advise the overweight to slim. It is the first time that doctors have been asked to cajole fat patients, old and young, to eat less, improve their diets and take exercise. The move by Caroline Flint, the Public Health Minister, is directed in particular at children and young people who need help to lose their excess pounds.' Perhaps if this proves difficult we will hear this kind of conversation: Patient: It isn't possible that I'm as overweight as you say I am. Doctor: Maybe you would prefer to look at it in a different way.  According to this chart, you're about 10 inches too short.

Dopey Danny was an extremely nervous patient whose imagination afflicted him with all kinds of misfortunes that never materialised. One afternoon he staggered into the house. Dopey Danny was bent forwards. He tottered to a chair and, still curled into a half-moon shape, dropped into it. 'Jenny,' he gasped, 'it's happened at last. There was no warning. All of a sudden I found I couldn't straighten up. I can't lift my head.' When the doctor had arrived and looked at Danny, Jenny inquired, 'Is there any hope, doc?' 'Well,' the GP replied, 'it would help a great deal if he would undo the third buttonhole of his waistcoat from the top button of his trousers.' See a real Patient Participation Group.

A doctor of psychiatry is doing his normal morning rounds at the hospital when he enters the ward. He finds Arnold sitting on the floor, pretending to saw a piece of wood in half.  Meanwhile Mark is hanging from the ceiling by his feet. The consultant asks Arnold what he's doing. Arnold smiles and answers, 'Can't you see I'm sawing this piece of wood in half?' The consultant nods and continues talking to Arnold and enquires what Mark is doing on the ceiling. Arnold looks up and murmurs, 'Oh, he's my friend, but he's a little crazy. He thinks he's a lightbulb.' The consultant looks up and notices that Mark's face is turning red and blue. The consultant remonstrates with Arnold and says, 'If he's your friend, you should get him down from there before he hurts himself.' Arnold replies with a sigh, 'What? And work in the dark.'Funny Doctor Jokes
