At a nurses' station at Great Ormond Street. .

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and that's what I am normally allotted for my monthly Editor's Desk. When I was a med student, I did a rotation at London's famed Hospital for Sick Children at Great Ormond Street. At one of the nurses' stations, where the students would stock up on Cadbury's chocolate taken from patients' rooms and read charts, there was a crude wood sign with the quote that appears below. It is, in essence, this month's Editor's Desk. On the last day of my rotation I scribbled it down on the back of a wrapper from a Fruit and Nut Bar, and have kept it ever since. EP Magazine has provided this picture for you with our compliments. It's suitable for framing, or tearing out and mailing to your doctor a week before your next visit.
