A delegate at the NHS Confederation’s conference in Liverpool has been spotted drawing what appeared to be a picture of the Flux Capacitor from Back to the Future, but with the patient at the centre.
For any readers who didn’t tape the 80s cinematic humdinger off the telly and watch it obsessively when they were eight, the Flux Capacitor is the mysterious invention that makes time travel possible.
The design for it came to loveable nutjob scientist Doc Brown in a vision after he slipped in the bathroom and hit his head on the sink.
We later learned the Confed doodle was actually a concept model for an academic health science network.
End Game is sure that such visions come to the NHS carefully through rigorous, patient-focused discussion, and not in a concussion-induced delirium.
