In Attack! Attack!, exiled Scot in Lincolnshire Alasdair McPherson, reflecting on his personal experiences at the hands of the NHS, has nothing but praise for his local medic staff.
That’s unlikely to be the view of Spanish medics held by the narrator of My Right Ear, the latest piece from our man in Barcelona, John McGroarty, in which an appointment at the doctor’s develops into an encounter worthy of a Chekhov tale.
Enjoy! And stay safe from the storm if it’s heading your way.
