#weekinreview - 11 November 2011

A glance back over this week's primary care news, opinion, top tweets and best gaffes.

Shadow health secretary Andy Burnham (@andyburnhammp) gave us an exclusive video interview on Tuesday to mark the launch of Labour’s Drop The Bill campaign.

#Blogs

#weekinreview is all for worthy NHS bloggage but there’s nothing quite like random subject matter typed by GPs to send pulses racing.

Hello then to NHS GP, author and private MRCGP courses educator Dr Una Coales (@drunacoales) on Sunday’s Miss World 60th anniversary event in London:

Were #weekinreview to be forced to pick an NHS blog of the week though it would be courtesy of GP Apprentice Dr Anuradha Arasu (@doctoranuarasu). Again.

Looking for a fall guy, or girl, to take the flak? She blogs:

One thing I love about having finished training is that you can blame registrars for everything.' And hurrah for that.
