Headline

GPs, not elderly people, should decide if they're fit to drive

Comment

Amen to above. Annual eye and driving tests needed, not a GP assessment. As the patient's advocate we are (for once) not "best placed" to make neutral decisions, and that's before you even start on fees , MDO hikes and clinical time. Total non-starter for our own patients. Should GPs be mad/keen enough to want to earn fees to do these voluntarily for non-registered patients, then good luck to them, but count me out.
