There's a doctor on trial at the moment for attempting to poison his pregnant girlfriend three times. The reporting has so far missed what to me is the biggest question crying out for an answer: How does someone who doesn't know enough about medicine to kill someone (in 3 attempts even) get licensed to be a doctor?
We must decide what to do with incompetent doctors - like the locum from Germany who came over here and killed a patient by giving him 100 units of something instead of 10. Unlicencing them is a too obvious choice; the state has spent tens of thousands of pounds educating and training them, and in this time of dire economic need we can't afford to be wasting resources.
Luckily I am here, for I also observe that while there are many who attend their local surgery to get healthy, there are those who fly to Switzerland to seek medical help dying. Why not just put our most incompetent doctors in a clinic and let people go there? Saves money, saves carbons flying to Switzerland... everyone's a winner.
