If I go down, the NHS goes with me


Well written Dr Copperfield. Risk taking has become a hallmark of GPs. Not fight for GPs to be taking risks. For the patient as well as ourselves. We should become more investigation minded, for our patient's sake. Unless the percentage rate for correct diagnoses for every illness in the International DiseaseRegister is specified in our contract, or we are given a free hand, written in our contract, we should really investigate on a 100% rate of diagnosis basis. Retired GP.
