Headline

GPs to receive training on tackling unprofessionalism from GMC

Comment

Tony, I have. And even as a fan, I think that's way too far into idealism on the other end. His basis for it is that medical knowledge shouldn't be the sole realm of medical professionals and should be freely available to the public. Even with todays advancement of the internet, that's no substitute for actual real time training and experience. I am for full disclosure and transparency though. And keeping a measure of licensing and registration. And provision of emergency treatment and access to primary care. All else in healthcare should remain individual responsibility. And policenthieves, how would we achieve that if 1. the law compels us to fund it i.e. its a tax/state funded. 2. the GMC and states in general find it very hard to relinquish POWER. 3. All attempts to bring about change by our supposed union have hit a blank wall. The options that are clear to us: 1. retire/emigrate individually. 2. you vote in parties that want to limit the size and power of the state. 3. you debate and use public pressure/influence to try and change things. 4. revolution en masse i.e. leaving the NHS. #DGTOW - Doctors Go Their Own Way!
