    Lots of discussion on the radio this evening about funding for the NHS and staff pay but I have what may be a really stupid question but do many nurses retrain as doctors? I would have thought it would be a natural career development for someone who administers primary care to retrain to diagnose illness or am I seeing things too simplistically?

    I don't think many do. Nurses nurse. Whilst nurses have a vast amount of medical knowledge, it's obviously limited, but what they do best is deliver the care required for a specific situation. They are, or should be, the caring face of the NHS. It's a completely different mind set to being a Doctor.

    A few years ago it was acknowledged that there were cases where senior nurses did surgery. There wasn't any real controversy so I assume that it goes on today.

    There is a certain Health Secretary that I would like to try a bit of surgery on....

    Where had the live coverage of the FIA European F3 gone?

    (Also where has the Ask CTA thread gone?)

    Maybe CTA has sunk without trace.:)

    A while ago while undertaking a spot of spring-cleaning I came across an interview of a retired basketball star, can't remember whom (I don't follow the sport myself) in old mag.

    It was a Q & A session with fans of his. In response to a question where he was asked about the kind of everyday difficulties his 7-foot-plus height exposed him to he said he had to have the front-seat of his car removed, so he could drive it from the back-seat.

    Would that not affect the road-legality of the car?

    Why should it? As long as his visibility was OK and he could reach the steering wheel there should be no problem. The Austin/Morris 1100 series had reversible clamps so that you could choose to sit further back if you were my height.

    Having watched the wheelchair tennis and some of the recent para-athletics championship a stupid question but do you have to be disabled to take part in wheelchair sport? I know if you are able bodied you could use a wheelchair (well durr) but do they check that the athletes are disabled in some way? I recall an incident in blind football a few years where they discovered one team was playing sighted players to try ensure they would win. Now all the players are blindfolded, to overcome this and to equalise the game for those with some partial vision.

    Yes, I believe that the Paralympic Association is the arbiter and assesses (or assesses documentation to the fact) the level of ability of athletes.

    Hi All,

    First of all, sorry for being away for a long time! I just tend to be a lurker now as I'm too busy to post and don't have much input anymore! :D

    I was looking for some help, as you know I'm from Scotland, but I recently went down to Birmingham and received a Parking Charge Notice from ce-service as supposedly I parked in a hotel for too long even though I paid for 24 hours parking and left before those 24 hours have expired.

    As I have been super busy I've been unable to look into this much, however the notice is charge is from 08/06/2017 and came through the issue date was 05/07/2017. I know in Scotland for Parking charges from private companies you can ignore them and bin them.

    The laws in England however are a little different, can anyone advise how to go about this? Can you ignore these charges that they fling at you with "threatening letters" or is some sort action needing done?

    Any advise would be appreciated, and yes I did miss you all even if you didn't miss me :D

    Thanks ma man, looks like dipping your toast in cider gives you some sense. Need to try it sometime.

    The only time that I got a ticket which I considered to be unfair I just ignored it. I did take photos which showed that the information was not clear especially as you were being waved into the parking area at a time when the traffic was moving quite quickly, the previous time I had been there parking was free; the year that charging was introduced the parking company made a mint. After a few weeks a letter came from the company in question but I ignored that as well. I never heard any more.

    These companies get paid for running the business, excess charges are a bonus; in my case I was prepared to the company whose venue I was attending detailing how much I had spent there and pointing out how much per year the venue would lose from my absence in future. But it never came to that.
