Protocol is wasting the art of applying science

As usual GPs are to be castigated for their errant ways.

To be frank – I am over it.

How lovely to be an academic in an ivory tower dealing with rarefied patient groups who all fit into neat pigeonholes. You know the type that actually makes it into clinical trials. The ones who have only one medical issue, who are virtually never aged older than 60 and who, if there is any sign of complication, are removed from the trial and shunted back to their GP.
