'Specialists in generalism' undersells GPs

Comment

Where the analogy goes wrong is that there is frequently nobody to help navigate the various plumbing products in a B&Q. People rely on searching Google for advice on what products to buy. If all else fails they will call a plumber and that process normally entails another Google search. Of course the reason they do this in the first place is to save money. GP consultations are free, which is why we are in high demand.
