GPs defending patient complaints to be asked which guidelines they followed


I once had a complaint against me when I did not follow a guideline. The ombudsman upheld the complaint, but then said since then the guidelines had changed and I was in line with the current guidelines. The reason I did not follow the guideline at the time is because I thought it was inappropriate. The guidelines then change to support my action. What a world.
