Messy Business

Guess what added a bit of bite to a large pile of statistics?

I like a recent tweet by the RCS’s Patrick Leahy (@pmrleahy).

He’d obviously had a look at the ‘fine print’ of NHS Digital’s Hospital Admitted Patient Care Activity, 2016-17.

He tweeted: “Last year 3 people were admitted to NHS hospitals after being bitten or struck by a crocodile or alligator.”

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt replied – with a flourish – “Sounds like I need to commission a strategy paper on this one.”

No laughing matter of course, if you’re one of the three….
