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 don’t sit down and work out all the possible drug interactions. Instead, they will say, “here take this, but before you do, do you take any other drugs?” If yes, they pick up the New Ethicals, do a quick check, and if no flags are raised, they go ahead with the prescription. That’s all they can possibly do.

You are confusing a GP with a specialist. And specialists don’t work alone.

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

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
