The Exorcist: the doctor's cut.

Dr Joyce Pratt has been called before the General Medical Council to explain why she recommended a patient, who complained about pain and bleeding, to see an exorcist. According to the Times, Pratt,

gave the woman crosses and trinkets to ward off black magic, allegedly told her that her mother was a witch, that she and her husband were trying to kill her, and suggested that she visit a Roman Catholic priest at Westminster Cathedral in London.
Pratt did not turn up for the hearing. These modern broom sticks are so unreliable.
