Headline

RCGP council to launch working group on overdiagnosis and overtreatment

Comment

I would hold fire on criticising this initiative even though I agree that the feeling out there is reflected by the first 2 comments. I have the utmost respect for Dr McCartney; if you read her book and/or listen to her broadcasts (BBC Inside Health) she is frank, straight talking and EBM is mixed with honest evaluation of current mood and thinking when whe comments. RCGP council- she should be president/ chair or be declared dictator for life! ( I am not her publisher or related.)
