As I’ve mentioned before, confidentiality is important to me. On this site I am trying to maintain this for everyone: me, my colleagues and our patients.
To this end, I try to replace every person’s name with a pseudonym of some description.
This names are chosen based on something about the person that stands out to me, or if I get stuck with that, something completely random. They are not deliberately chosen to be nasty, and are all are based solely on my opinion. I also believe that none of them are sufficient to positively identify any one individual without already knowing a great deal about them.
If you do think you know who someone is, please refrain from posting this. I can and will edit or remove any post that threatens confidentiality. Repeat offenders may find all their posts being moderated.
