they, poor men, had got rid of them temporarily by handing them a note to St Swithin's. This was an example of an established medical practice known as snag-shifting, which went on just as actively in St Swithin's itself.

Most of the symptoms were manifestly incompatible with life if they had existed, but every patient had to be investigated in case something sinister lay beneath. This provided an excellent opportunity for snagshifting. A persistent patient with headaches could, with a few strokes of the pen, be transferred to the eye department. It simply needed the houseman to scribble `Headaches. Any eye signs T on the notes and the patient moved to another queue outside another doctor's door. After the eye department had found nothing and were tired of the fellow appearing in front of them week after week they sent him to the throat clinic.

The surgeons might operate or not, according to the length of their waiting-list at the time; whatever happened, after a few more visits to out-patients' he would find himself having all his teeth out in the dental section, who packed him off afterwards to the physio-therapy department in case the headaches-which continued-were due to disfunction of the neck muscles.
