Diary: Hsd celebrates a good, sticky year

'The body is meant to be seen, not all covered up,' Marilyn Monroe once said - advice hsd communications took on board at its Oscar-themed party last week.

The red-carpet event, patronised by 'Sean Connery' and 'Marilyn', was hosted by the healthcare agency's 19-strong, all-female team (plus 'token man', chairman Carl Francis.) The dinner conversation ranged from catheters to vagina moisturiser - healthcare PR has never sounded so interesting, and the salubrious Moor Park Golf Club has not seen the like. Since last year, that is.

The climax was the handing out of gongs to clients who had forced hsd staffers to embarrass themselves in the line of duty. This included handling sutured pork bellies for the Primary Care Dermatology Society and briefing a journalist about urinary infections at The Ivy with a 'horrified' Zandra Rhodes sitting at the next table.

Sordid stuff.
