No, Specialty without the final 'ity' is standard usage in British Medical practice. It's a common gotcha with people starting to do business with the NHS (and private hospitals): its a shibboleth of whether you know what you are talking about. This link [1] shows such usage. And in this case LEO really is not a good place to start. -- SK53 17:11, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
