Frederico, with all due respect to GPs, you over-estimate the skill of a GP. You talk about complex drug interactions, but most assessments are formulaic. GPs donâ€™t sit down and work out all the possible drug interactions. Instead, they will say, â€śhere take this, but before you do, do you take any other drugs?â€ť If yes, they pick up the New Ethicals, do a quick check, and if no flags are raised, they go ahead with the prescription. Thatâ€™s all they can possibly do.
You are confusing a GP with a specialist. And specialists donâ€™t work alone.

Andrew Bannister, with all due respect, I suspect I am more qualified to comment on this than you
