What does BWS mean in British Medicine?
This page is about the meanings of the acronym/abbreviation/shorthand BWS in the Medical field in general and in the British Medicine terminology in particular.
This abbreviation and its translation appears in Tony White’s NHSJargon Explained, but is not defined. Those curious enough to surf the web will find a number of non-OED definitions, one seemingly ruder than the next. If one assumes Mssr White was referring to the least indelicate of the definitions–that of a grotesquely obese person–woe betide the doctor brash enough to put that abbreviation on a patient’s medical record, should the notes fall under the scrutiny of a eagle-eyed solicitor.
