'Specialists in generalism' undersells GPs

Comment

I don't much like being called a specialist in anything - I'm proud to be a generalist. Remember - if all the specialists resigned, there would still be a functioning NHS, albeit an imperfect one. If all the generalists resigned, there would be no functioning NHS. What does this tell us? It tells us that specialists are optional. Generalists are essential.
