It was my second visit to the Clinic so I know that there are at least two consultants working there. The signage indicates very much more than that – and they all pass the signs every day they work there. They probably don’t even read them – why would they as they know where they are going?
These consultants have undergone many years of education. They had to prove their intelligence before setting out on a medical path. I would have expected them to have been instilled with a discipline of ‘doing it right’ and not accepting anything incorrect.
Even in Irish, the singular has been used although the preferred translation has changed – ‘comhairleoir’ and ‘comhairleach’.
It is not a life or death matter by any means. It is not even something that very many will even notice. But is it recommended that any consultant be associated with poor standards?
My doctor and consultants almost always ask of my blood pressure levels. It is something that has been monitored for nearly ten years now. Just think - the consultants and the H.S.E. could very easily reduce my stress levels by simply correcting the signage.
Many probably will not even notice an amended sign in Irish or English but on every trip to Wilton, I will be looking. Such observations could well elevate my b.p. for a while.
But that is just the way that I am wired…..
