Within medical circles, specialities usually fit into one of two broad categories: "Medicine" and "Surgery." "Medicine" refers to the practice of non-operative medicine, and most of its subspecialties require preliminary training in Internal Medicine. In the UK, this was traditionally evidenced by passing the examination for the Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) or the equivalent college in Scotland or Ireland. "Surgery" refers to the practice of operative medicine, and most subspecialties in this area require preliminary training in General Surgery, which in the UK leads to membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (MRCS). At present, some specialties of medicine do not fit easily into either of these categories, such as radiology, pathology, or anesthesia. Most of these have branched from one or other of the two camps above; for example anaesthesia developed first as a faculty of the Royal College of Surgeons (for which MRCS/FRCS would have been required) before becoming the Royal College of Anaesthetists and membership of the college is attained by sitting for the examination of the Fellowship of the Royal College of Anesthetists (FRCA).
“After nearly 30 years as a partner at CMP, I have begun to reduce my working hours as I approach the time to retire. As from the end of March I will be working 2 days per week at Cheadle – Monday and Tuesday. At the same time I will be retiring from my role as senior partner, remaining as a salaried doctor. I plan to retire from practice in July 2018. I have been connected with the practice since I was a medical student here in 1984, and I look forward to enjoying my last year or so here as much as I remember enjoying the first.”
Personally I have just had two cataract operations and I used magnesium chloride eye drops that I made up myself using this pure magnesium oil diluted 15 parts distilled water to one part magnesium. The surgery was a success and my recovery was quick. This same magnesium can be put in a nebulizer and can be used at home by patients both before and after surgery both orally and transdermally to great effect. Surgeons need to become familiar with the transdermal approach for then they can start their patients off with heavy application weeks before surgery and for weeks after since this method of application can easily be done at home by patients. For use with a nebulizer again I recommend only the purest magnesium available. Even the pharmaceutical grades have heavy metal contamination so are not suitable.
