A medical dictionary is being compiled to help
doctors understand their patients' dialects in the North-East of England


Inflamed trollibags? The GP understands
By Paul Stokes

A new medical dictionary is being compiled by a health trust concerned that doctors may not be able to understand their patients' dialect.

Nothing in years of training or anatomical study will have prepared GPs for the vagaries of language in the North-East.

The broad accent has left some doctors pondering expressions such as inflamed trollibags, sore thropples and painful wangs; which do not appear in standard references.
