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

But thanks for highlighting Labours attitude to GPs. Ignorance and disrespect.[/quote]

    Fred – how does it feel to "come out of the closet" as it were?


    Hang in there – as I said on Kiwiblog, your comeback to Andrew Bannister (not his real name – interesting!) was a Kiwiblog classic.


    BTW – are you doing deals on hips at the moment – when you can get OT time?
