Royal Colleges urge patients to question GPs over tests and treatments

Comment

Er....as a GP I always tried to do this. However, some of the rest of it is just so BLOODY silly. Like, well, we KNOW you don't image for migraine routinely, and you DON'T use antibiotics for "conditions that aren't infections" except in very unusual circumstances. Some of these "ex-cathedra" statements are just GCSE level Medicine!
