Two thirds of GPs practising more defensively amid fears of 'compensation culture'


My attitude as a patient is there is nothing to worry about if you follow the hippocratic oath . If the corporate contract & commissioning has taken over which is unreasonable you must expect people to want to survive. Don't worry though the GMC & legal system are call centres not addressing issues fairly. I expect Doctors to stand up , unite & be counted not allow the corporate to take over unreasonably. Do they have a conflict of interest? The system is in need of restructure as one is placed into adversarial position & blamed.
