We like to be liked…and in most cases we are able to do something that the patient appreciates.

Our job, however, is to do the right thing. This often means (effectively) saying, “No” to something the patient would like. E.g. a prescription for antibiotics; a prescription for a potentially addictive drug; a test; a referral; a report or note etc.

Some patients can be won round with care. There is evidence to guide us here. Some patients aren’t going to be happy, however we go about things. These patients need a clear boundary.

These skills have not traditionally been taught well to GPs or the other independent practitioners working in GP surgeries




It is often difficult to rely on the wi-fi at various training venues. Therefore, you may be interested in downloading the ‘Learning Diary’ App from FourteenFish.  Learning Diary App . By using this, you can electronically record your learning without the need for the internet.
