Oliver of Norfolk ,

Really felt you were talking to me today.

Really enjoying the take on General Anesthetiser. Had one earlier today at NNUH and it really does feel like I was there one minute talking to the surgical team, the next I was in recovery. I was no more and didn’t exist for a while.

Thank you Adam and Anil.

Chandlerfish ,

Belle and Sébastien

Powellmama ,

Adam you clever, funny man. My absolute fave ⭐️
