Should we be involved at all in sicknotes?
nI dont think Dr Barrie and Dr Hawker and being quite honest when they suggest GPs should always respect the cultural and religious backgrounds of parents and their choice in the debate on circumcision (Letters, February 12).
While not personally having very strong views on the subject though I'm glad mine wasn't chopped off! I rather doubt they would also respect a request from a patient for the female circumcision of a child on cultural grounds.
