Our fourth Urgent Care at Christmas discussion is inspired by a film that changed modern action thrillers and bucked the trend of action heroes being muscle-bound giants.

The glass foreign body in the foot. To talk about the Welsh tradition of Mari Lwyd, singing carols, Alan Rickman and the pain of injecting the sole of the foot we are joined by Dr Zoë Cruse.
Our third Urgent Care at Christmas discussion is inspired by the blockbuster comic book movie, Iron Man 3.

Our second Urgent Care at Christmas discussion is inspired by the 2003 modern classic Elf. To talk about a cold versus warm Christmas, demonstrate his Jimmy Stewart impression and discuss Raccoon bites, we are joined by Urgent Care Physician and Wilderness Medicine expert Dr Dinesh Deonarain.
