SurgeonGeneral is an addon designed to simplify healing assignments in a raid situation. It's easy to use interface allows you to give all your healers assignments and then report those assignments to /raid and/or the custom channel of your choosing. It supports multiple phases for complex fights.

Reporting is done in the following format:

Healing Assignments: Boss Name Healer: Phase1 ~ Phase2 ~ Phase3 ... CharName1: Assignment CharName2: Assignment CharName3: Assignment ... CharName10: Assignment

Boss Name will only be displayed if there is an entry in this text field. Healer: Phase1 ~ Phase2 ... will only be displayed if the fight is set use more than 1 phase, and will use the phase names supplied by the user.
