It's not said, purely because it's pointless to say it...
Edited to clarify,
Careful Jo, that kind of a statement is guaranteed to provoke a strong reaction and rightly so. It is irrespective whether you have heard this said or not, you were not there, Ju was and she has repeated what was said. To say it wasn't said impies she is a liar and that is an unreasonable and provocative accusation.
There are many of us here who have had a lot of contact with medical professionals in both work and personal life There are many who have been on the receiving end of statements that you may consider fabrications. They happen, of that there is no doubt.
I wouldn't have thought that calling someone a liar, or rather implying it is a good way of promoting cordial relations on the forum, would you?
[mod edit -getting a touch too personal]
Yes Jules, you were there and I for one would not doubt a word you said. It's a shame you can't just post your rant, which I think you were well justified in having, and then be supported.
