A hospital or nursing home group taken somewhere in Waterford. We knew the gentleman on the right was Dr Vincent White, and the other two men were Dr Halley and Mr F. Murphy, but we didn't know which is which. And we had no information at all on the nurses...
However, delighted to report that phalley let us know that Dick Halley is standing on back left, and that sitting second from the right is Edna Barry, and that this photo was probably taken at the Waterford and City Infirmary. phalley was then good enough to come back to us to identify the nurse on the left as May Hedigan, who lived at Ballycarnane, Tramore; and that the nurse second from the left was Kitty Walsh from Slieverue, married to a Billy Walsh.
So now we're down to the nurse on the right. Everyone else has been identified...

Bad Pharma by Ben Goldacre
How Drug Companies mislead Doctors and harm Patients
From amazon.co.uk : " Ben Goldacre puts the $600bn global pharmaceutical industry under the microscope. What he reveals is a fascinating, terrifying mess.
Doctors and patients need good scientific evidence to make informed decisions. But instead, companies run bad trials on their own drugs, which distort and exaggerate the benefits by design. When these trials produce unflattering results, the data is simply buried. All of this is perfectly legal. In fact, even government regulators withhold vitally important data from the people who need it most. Doctors and patient groups have stood by too, and failed to protect us. Instead, they take money and favours, in a world so fractured that medics and nurses are now educated by the drugs industry. Patients are harmed in huge numbers.
Ben Goldacre is Britain’s finest writer on the science behind medicine, and ‘Bad Pharma’ is a clear and witty attack, showing exactly how the science has been distorted, how our systems have been broken, and how easy it would be to fix them. "

vintage doctor's swag - craps dice advertise tylenol with codeine
Found this vintage pair of vintage craps dice while playing games new year's eve. It took a little while to piece together the orginal use of the dice as part of tylenol's marketing campaign with doctors to boost awareness/prescriptions of the codeine variety which was launched in 1963. Take our meds and come up a winner every time!

Is it not also true that no physician, in so far as he is a physician, considers or enjoins what is for the physician's interest, but that all seek the good of their patients? For we have agreed that a physician strictly so called, is a ruler of bodies, and not a maker of money, have we not?
Instead of wishing to see more doctors made by women joining what there are, I wish to see as few doctors, either male or female, as possible. For, mark you, the women have made no improvement -- they have only tried to be men and they have only succeeded in being third-rate men.
I have noticed that doctors who fail in the practice of medicine have a tendency to seek one another's company and aid in consultation. A doctor who cannot take out your appendix properly will recommend you to a doctor who will be unable to remove your tonsils with success.
