London Olympics 2012

The time has come and gone and London Olympics 2012 has ended. The greatest athletes from all corners of the world came together to meet, to come and to conquer the world. 

Some of us may have been lucky enough to get tickets to watch some of the amazing feats happen live before our eyes. But an estimated one billion people will have watched the greatest spectacle on the earth in the comfort of their own home. Of course the Olympics is not just about winning. The values it enshrines are respect, excellence and friendship whilst the paralympic values are courage, determination, inspiration and equality.

How do you rate against the Olympic and Paralympic values? Play the Know your Values game to find out!

Haughton Thornley Medical Centres wishes all the competitors luck as their hopes and dreams have hopefully been realised over the last few weeks. There have been winners and losers but this is not what the Games are only about - it's about competing, it's about taking part, it's about being fair and a lot of fun, fun, fun!

But we also hope that it has encouraged a whole generation of people to become more active themselves, change their life style and benefit from being more active. What type of Olympian / Paralympian could you be? Here are a variety of links that you might wish to try out yourself


We have seen lots of astounding things the athletes do but what about locally? Are you a local Olympian / Paralympian too? Somebody who might not be the quickest in the world at running, playing football, swimming or cycling. But none the less, you still display the values of an Olympian in your own way. If so then we would love to hear from you and share your experiences with others too. So if you have any stories you would like to share with others then send us an email on htmcpatient@nhs.net and tell us about it too!

Peter proudly holding the Olympic flame during Olympics 2012 

Peter aged 83, a patient of Haughton Thornley Medical Centres, receiving the Olympic flame amongst freinds, colleagues, well-wishers and in front of the public and cameras, being supported by an Olympic official. This is the Partnership of Trust in action captured in a photo for the world to see.

Peter aged 83, a patient of Haughton Thornley Medical Centres, receiving the Olympic flame amongst friends, colleagues, well-wishers and in front of the public and cameras, being supported by an Olympic official. This is the Partnership of Trust in action, captured in a photo for the world to see. Peter still runs regularly a few times a week in order to look after himself and maintain his health. He ran through the streets with the flame in his hand - a symbol of the Olympic spirit - so that people from all the local communities could come and see the spectacle and a few people were lucky enough to see him and let others see the flame too!

He has access to his GP electronic health records.

In the consulting room: first signs of post Olympic stress disorder

(reprinted here from the Editor's Blog NHS Networks News)

As the nation remains glued to its television sets and the commentators power their metaphors down the home straight to the closing ceremony, frontline NHS staff are dealing with the inevitable casualties. Find out more in the latest in our fly-on-the-wall series about everyday medical folk...

Doctor: What can I do for you?

Woman in tracksuit: I havenít been feeling myself.

Doctor: Can you be more specific?

Woman: I have these terrible mood swings. One minute Iím really happy, and the next Iím in floods of tears.

Doctor: Have you been watching sport on television by any chance?

Woman: Yes, but no more than anyone else. 

Doctor: But perhaps a little more than usualÖ 

Woman: I suppose so. You know how it is, you have a few friends round and end up watching a bit more than you mean to. Before you know it, itís the womenís boxing.

Doctor: Talk me through a typical day.

Woman: Maybe, um, a bit of badminton, some swimming, gymnasticsÖ

Doctor: That all sounds perfectly normal.

Woman: Sailing, some cycling, hockey, beach volleyball, triathlonÖ

Doctor: I see.  And when do you usually have your first one of the day.

Woman: Sometimes a little judo or pistol shooting mid-morning, just as a pick-me-up.

Doctor: After a heavy night on the athletics, you mean.

Woman: Itís not a problem. I could stop at any time if I wanted to. 

Doctor: Have you had the runs at all?

Woman: 100 metre sprint,  110 metre hurdles, 200 metres, 400 metre relayÖ

Doctor: Over the course of a few days, I hope.

Woman: More like a few hours. Weíve got Sky Plus. We can watch it over and over again.

Doctor (writing notes): BingeÖ sprinting. Any rowing?

Woman: Only sculls.

Doctor: Singles?

Woman: Doubles.

Doctor: What about coxless fours?

Woman: Not the hard stuff. I know my limits.

Doctor: How would you describe your state of mind recently?

Woman: I was fine, you know, leading a normal life, not expecting much.

Doctor: Then what happened?

Woman: At first it was just about taking part and being a good host. Iíd have settled for a bronze and a couple of silvers in the archery and that thing with the ribbon.

Doctor: And now?

Woman: Iím finding it takes more and more to keep me satisfied. Itís got to be gold. Nothing else will do.

Doctor: Iím with you there. Now look, you canít go on like this indefinitely.

Woman: Give it to me straight, doc. How long have I got?

Doctor: Itíll all be over by Sunday. Iím so sorry.

Woman (sobbing uncontrollably): I canít believe it.

Doctor: I know itís hard to take in.

Woman: No, I mean I canít believe weíve just got gold in the individual dressage. It just came through on my iPhone. Iíd better get off, itís the quarterfinals of the menís water polo in half an hour. Thanks, doc.

Doctor: Not at all. Would you mind closing the Games on the way out?
