Probably not, but you must not wince at each "whilst." And you must tolerate colloquialisms such as "pen torch" for "pen light" and "napkin rash" for "diaper rash." And you must remember that the British spelling is sometimes different from ours; for example, placing an "a" before an "e." This may not seem too onerous, but when I searched the index for "hemolytic-uremic syndrome," it was not there.
