I recognised her immediately as a lady in her late eighties who had been my patient for many years. I elbowed my way through the cluster of onlookers, and knelt by her side. She looked up at me from the ground, smiled, then turned to the crowd and announced: ‘Now you know. If you can’t get an appointment, this is how you get to see Dr Haslam.’
