Doctors often use a private code when writing medical notes about patients. They do it partly to save time and partly so that patients won’t know what they have written. Just in case you get a chance to look at your medical records here are some of the abbreviations which are most commonly used these days. (Though do remember that not all these abbreviations are used in all hospitals or by all GPs).

NOD = Nice old duck
ACD = A complete dickhead
FAS = Fat and silly
NQOC = Not quite our class
