I know that most of the discussion regarding the recent National Institute for Health Research report about the effects of financial incentives on clinical practice has centred around the 'Pharmacists – are they just devious mercenary robbing bastards like us, and if they are, will they ever be as good at it?' stuff (see my previous post here).

I quote verbatim:

'He needs his head kicking in. He knows jack shit about general practice.'

Sir, wherever you may be, I salute you.
