> I'm afraid I dont know a better word for bull**** but if I fid a more technical term I'll let you know :) Even if you think your pdoc is doing the

thanks bro, stay on the lookout :)

>wrong thing I find it really hard to go against what they are saying. After all, they are *meant* to know what they are talking about, and it is nice to assume that they have your best interests at heart.

yeah... if only they'd admitt that something might not work, you could put your efforts to coming up with backup plans... or perhaps a better option..

> I'd still like to do psychiatry, i just think it might be a hard path to take. Being a GP has

ah but you could get through psychiatry dead easy cuz there is no competition, right?

>crossed my mind, but I think there'll be too much of that 'old granny wanting to come for a chat' type thing, and any interesting problems get referred on so you never see them to conclusion.

true... but in other medicines you might get sick of being stuck in one area, whereas the challenge for gps is limitless cuz they get to deal with it all

> > EASY! return phone calls..... that would automatically put you in the top 0.1% of psychiatrists right off the bat :) :)

> >I agee with the returning phone calls thing. I've never phoned a psychiatrist of mine, but i can see how difficult it must be when you really need to speak to them. I suppose some patients geti into the habbit of phoning, and the docs dont want people to get into that cycle and become dependent - i dont know, thats just a guess.

i think the doc could just let you know when you are getting out of hand rather than not even make an effort at all.......... i think it just comes down to them being really busy

> Yeah, they have opened a few recently but there's still not enough doc's and the young one's are worked way too long hours. With a free health service there are bound to be cutbacks everywhere. I've got a friend who's made several suicide attempts recently and has had her initial pdoc appointment cancelled and rescheduled 3 times, she still hasnt seen him.

don't they have emergency departments to deal with things like that?? it sounds quite horrible
