EPR Arms? Whats that all about?

This website has a strange name eh?

What's EPR? And what has 'Down at the EPR Arms' got to do with the price of fish?


I was working in the NHS on electronic patient records (aka EPR) for about twenty years, and during that time I had a monthly 'page' in a Health Informatics journal (The British Journal of Healthcare Computing )'

Today you would call it a Blog but then I just called it 'my page in a monthly (paper) journal.'

In my monthly 'Blog' or page, I used to have an imaginary pub in Yorkshire opposite a busy hospital, where I used to talk to some (imaginary) mates about all things to do with the NHS and computers and life and stuff. I called that pub The EPR Arms and my Blog was called 'Down at the EPR Arms'. Click on EPR Arms to see ALL the published blogs describing NHS Health Informatics in my imaginery pub.

Harry & Sean Brennan are brothers. They've been brothers for - well - erhm- all of their lives. They lived in Bolton for several decades and then Sean made the jump for promotion to a hospita NOT IN BOLTON. It was actually in Huddersfield so not even in the same county. It was at exactly this time that these two brothers who lived a stones throw from each other, decided to form a band. That band was Intaglio and they recorded several long playing casettes (remember those?) of their own music. Click on the Intaglio Tab to experience that unforgetable Intaglio  sound.

Theatre Stuff? What's that all about then?

So when I wasn't working 'In the NHS I was doing Amateur Dramatics (Am Dram). Pantomimes to be more specific. 

I started off by being a disruptive element in the Chorus in the late seventies, progessing to main parts including Dame and finally as scriptwriter and performer. See 'Theatre Stuff' page for more details and photos
