There's the old joke, Vertigo, about a doctor sitting next to a solicitor at a dinner party:
Doctor: I had someone at the bridge club ask me about a pain in his back, I recommended some pain killers and exercises. Later I sent him a bill for £25 and he's refusing to pay. What do you think I should do?
Solicitor: I think it sounds like a stern letter followed up with a summons to the Small Claims Court should do the trick.
Doctor: Thank you.
Solicitor: Not at all. That will be £50.
