Opinion: Why doctors must join climate war
THERE are some things we pride ourselves on as GPs. We pride ourselves on being scientifically literate. We base our treatments on the best available evidence of the causes and treatments of ill-health.
We pride ourselves on being able to explain and communicate complex ideas, enabling people to take action to improve their health.
And we pride ourselves on being trusted.
We are consistently among the most trusted professions: 80% of the population see a GP each year and discuss sensitive personal information with us.
