It's the same situation for the adult services
We are far less aggressive in investigating and treating the underlying causes of heart failure in the UK.Most of these patients are over the age of 70 and are essentially treated with palliative intent.Officially of course we are not ageist.As they say in the NHS:a good patient is a dead patient.
Firing blanks as always
GMC=bunch of madar chods
Is the suicide rate higher than in other occupations?I'll be curious to know.
One thing that you can always count on is an ample supply of Judas goats in the profession

I don't get it.If it's that bad why carry on!
Two things I want to know: What is it's negative predictive value? Will it legally indemnify us?
..and no mention of regular azithromycin three times/week so beloved by respiratory physicians?
These so called leading doctors lead in feathering their own nests.
Imagine if a coloured doctor had been involved.

An excellent editor.You'll be sorely missed.Best wishes
A simple solution would be to stop paying into the GMC's coffers.Isn't it a bit odd that we're paying for an organisation that is set out to flog us at the earliest opportunity.How masochistic is that?If the public wants us crucified then let them pay for the public executions.Unfortunately our profession is too spineless to even do that.Everyone is feathering their own nest.
Do you really want to be working with ever dwindling resources and then being charged with manslaughter when things go horribly pear shaped?

An algorithm would have been useful
...and can we have data on the cut in dementia services in the same period?
How do you manage the CPD?Are there consultants who provide lectures?
