Hit LTA at 58, took 24 hour retiral on 59th birthday and dropped from 9 sessions to 4 ( 2 day working week and 5 day weekends ). Might have gone on until 65 but untimely death of two brothers one 60 and one 59 made my mind up Retired fully in December 2017 and never looked back.
Took 24 hour retirement and drew my pension aged 59. Reduced from 9 sessions weekly to 4. Initially planned to retire at 65 but ran out of steam at 62 and retired fully on 31/12/18. Never looked back.
Why would anyone trust this bunch of incompetents with their confidential information. Positive permission from patients for the use of their data should be the default position.
This is a toxic medicine whose efficacy is in doubt to say the least. I wouldn’t take it or prescribe it and I think persuading well patients to take it would be ethically unsound.
The point about pricing is well made. Why does HM Gov not challenge monopoly manufacturers of generic medications who seek excessive profits when they have not incurred R and D costs? Spineless lickspittles to Big Pharma......
"For it's 'Tommy this' and 'Tommy that' and 'Tommy how's yer soul?' but it's 'Thin red line of heroes' when the drums begin to roll...."

Turned my back on hospital medicine as an SHO (remember them) in the 1980s and have never regretted doing so. "Consultant" suggests secondary care, the public have no idea what the term Primary Care Physician means.... GP=Family Doctor and that's what we are.
