A tribute to the 9ers

Comment

The great thing about being about being a GP was the autonomy. The recognition of professionalism that allowed us the freedom to do the job with the trust that we were doing our best drawing on the years of experience to work in a way that lived with much that was not evidence based, because much of the evidence was not there. But to try and follow guidelines that were not sound, but then being criticised for using our own intelligence and critical thinking in the way we were trained to do is demoralizing. The pontificating 'experts' in their ivory towers who seek to impose their own brand of crap arrogant ideas is pernicious.
