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.  Die Hard has long been considered a Christmas classic but the reason it has made our urgent care list is that it shows a common and very painful presentation to urgent care.  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.  While it might not strike you as a classic Christmas movie, it does take place at Christmas and it highlights a condition that often presents to UC, especially over the holidays.  To talk about the charm of English pubs, whether Love Actually still holds up and approaching insomnia through Urgent Care we are joined by UC Fellow Dr Caitlin Randles.
