GPs defending patient complaints to be asked which guidelines they followed


I’ve been in the coroners court when the coroner asked me to open a box file and read out a section of the guidelines for patients that deliberately self harm. Had I done everything on there ? The patient did not have borderline PD or depression. Problem with guidelines is that non experts don’t know how to apply them.
