Well! :shock:

That might've been more interesting if it'd been presented by a woman with a better English accent!

Narrators/presenters should speak clearly. It's like when you need to call your phone company. They invariably transfer you to someone in India, and it's really frustrating when they don't speak English properly.

Maybe you're used to it. I bet you hear foreign doctors and other staff all the time.

I'd say comprehension was of the essence myself. When I went to hospital last time, I was talking to an Asian doctor, and it took me all my time to decipher what he was going on about - seriously. I asked to speak to someone else.

Didn't need one. I just asked for an English-speaking doctor. They understood what I meant, and one came out to me.

It's in the Patients' Charter that everyone has that option. Interpreters're also available for foreign-speaking patients who have little command of English.

A pleasure, Watson - although you must've known that yourself, through work!
