Medicine for adventurers and explorers

Well done Pulse for getting such important data on what patients want (The Great Pulse Patient Survey, 17 September).

As Dr George Rae points out in his commentary, continuity of care is becoming overwhelmed by the deluge of daft ideas emanating from the Government and swallowing NHS cash.

Perhaps its time for us all to let our local MP know that if he/she wants continuity of votes from the electorate, then continuity of care from their GPs is more important than the latest Downing Street fad. Patients and voters are the same people.

Shouldn't a Government that is so keen on evidence-based medicine give us more evidence-based policies to deliver it?
