What's wrong with " doc " for short,that EVERYONE knows. ::) Bit different when it comes to the spelling of PSYCHIATRIST isn't it ?


You don't have to take my word for it, you know? You can write to The Royal College. I'm sure they'll explain it. You can argue with them that you think SYC is a better abbreviation.

Well, you come out with some OUTLANDISH suggestions tonight. It's quite obvious that they've been  wild stabs in the dark. If you're not daft, I guess you must be desperate to prove your point.

What about abbreviations in the minds of disturbed persons ? Were you inside Sheila's mind ?

Well I know what I'd rather write instead of the full word--------psychiatrist or syc ?

So you're saying, are you, that from the benefit of your close involvement with psychiatry, both staff and patients, you've discovered the most commonly used abbreviation for "psychiatrist" is syc?

The saying of the word syc was commonly heard,but writing it was always done in a professional capacity as psychatrist. Sheila hadn't happened to do that had she ? So in order for her to discontinue writing it in full she shortened it to syc which makes sense as the " p " is silent anyway isn't it ?
