And he was right. The overwhelming majority of minor illnesses will go away with little or no treatment other than rest and lots of fluids. A good GP is one who knows the difference between a minor illness and one that requires medical intervention.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.

True, but it's still a bit of a cop-out. Not everyone goes to the doctor first day of symptoms. I had a phlegmy cough and earaches for about 4 weeks, decided to go doctors and still got told "come back in a couple of weeks". So I went back, different doctor, and was given antibiotics for ear and chest infection. Cleared up in 2 weeks.
I feel the first doctor could have easily diagnosed me correctly if he had just taken a couple of minutes to properly consider the symptoms. I was coughing up some pretty nasty stuff by the time I went to see him!
Although I get that they are overloaded with patients and they just want to play the numbers game.
Judging from what I see on YouIdioTube nobody develops Android apps any more - they just throw bits together from Smack Overdose and concentrate on cramming as many paying adverts and chargeable DLC's as possible in there ...
