Comment

I urge all my colleagues mulling retirement in the next 2 or 3 years to just get on and do it. Life is just too short for this BS. There are other things you can do. And, if your parting gift to those you leave behind is that surgeries close, patients revolt, and this madness from on high is halted because they is just no one left to see the punters, then you will have done those of us left behind a favour. No medical student should even contemplate our speciality, unless it's a firm device to leave the UK. "In order to save the village, it is sometimes necessary to burn it down". Where is Ivan tonight? Working?
