Episode 1 - Magaluf

Magaluf

The doctors set up shop on the golden sands of Magaluf, party central for Brits abroad. Each week 10 young Brits are hospitalised in the resort, usually as a result of excessive alcohol.

First they met Kirstie, a girl who suffered a friction burn to her wrist while giving a man a ‘helping hand’. Dr Christian’s advice is to keep it dry and clean, watch out for signs of infection but otherwise let it heal naturally.

Next up is Anthony, a man with a bothersome ball. Dr Pixie diagnosed a varicocele, essentially a varicose vein on the testicle. She advises Anthony that it’s nothing to worry about, and offers him some tips on how to check balls for signs of cancer.

The doctors go on a condom crusade, teaching partygoers how to put condoms on and trying to make sure our hedonistic holidaymakers understand how reckless unprotected sex can be.

Also on the agenda is vomit, and lots of it. Dr Christian shows these youngsters what to look out for. Blood can be a sign of damage to the throat, while throwing up bile is a sign of severe dehydration and possible organ damage. Dry heaving can tear the stomach lining, causing all manner of serious problems. Then there’s the danger of choking on vomit. To avoid these dangers stop drinking earlier, stay hydrated and know your own limits.

I'm the poor mans step daughter an I agree with Dr Christian my stepdad nick was butchered, you haven't seen the operations an how bad he has been after them an in order to save his life his face has been butchered there's no nice way to put it, its just like saying sorry but we hacked half your face off there is no good way to tell someone they will only have half a face, An no the nhs isn't paying for it because they said it would be to much they implants that he now has are the first ever made an to be honest he knows they may not last that long an can go back to having only half a face but he also wants to live a normal life an take the chance, Mr dawood is paying for this himself an I think that is just wounderful of him.

I thought that 'Dr Christian' s use of the phrase 'being butchered' to describe the treatment of the man who had had a hemimaxillectomy and orbital exenteration as entirely inappropriate. 'Dr Christian' does not even a membership (MRCS) in surgery, so to describe his treatment options as he did was poor. I would suggest that Dr Christian, whilst qualified as a doctor, is not sufficiently qualified to make this particular consultation. I do hope that channel 4 is prepared for he upkeep and replacement of this man's prosthesis for the rest of his life, as this will not be covered on the NHS now.
