Creating an extra million medical school places will translate into one extra full-time GP, admits think tank


In NHS Scotland we are told to "THINK frailty", "THINK delirium", "THINK dementia" by the Think Tank that is Healthcare Improvement Scotland (capitals not mine) All this thinking is related to specialising sub-dividing. Generalism loses out. I would suggest that an extra million medical school places will create an extra million specialists! It is time that we had a renaissance of generalists! Sadly "THINK tanks" are in their own "SILOS" and a tank cannot even think!
