GPs are often termed the “primary health carers,” the “gateway” to the whole health system. They are portrayed as super human beings who know everything and everybody.
The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners has recently commenced an aggressive TV campaign and appears to have a new website both obviously aiming at trying to reinforce this impression of them.
We have just sent them a message saying:-
In many years of working in the area of trying to locate the best doctors and avoid the not so good ones we’ve never come across one of the professional organisations like the RACGP that has shown the slightest interest in or concern for the welfare of any of the patients of their members.
Will the RACGP be any different?
We’ll let you know if we hear from them.
