Royal Colleges urge patients to question GPs over tests and treatments

Comment

Ahem, speaking as a Gp, I have rarely encountered communication problems at this level, however, sadly I must report that the highly invasive tests frequently ordered by some of my comsultant colleagues are sometimes obfuscated with the patient regarding the inherent dangers of some of these investigations, imho the more invasive/ dangerous a test becomes the more explanation is required.
