Re:The Trossel judgement may have serious implications for 'alternative' therapies

The position of the majority of us in clinical practice in primary
care is that we very frequently prescribe treatments for which we have no
specific randomised controlled trial evidence. God forbid that Dr
McKinstry should find himself up against the GMC for such a heinous crime
as practicing primary care.
