I had a consultation with Dr Zachariah last week at Addenbrooks following a stroke last November. I have met him once before whilst in hospital. On both occasions I found him to be rigid, unimaginative and negative. He may be quite good at the actual medical bit but really needs to spend some time talking to stroke patients to gain a better understanding of their needs. He also needs to understand and work more closely with physiotherapists. Good rehab is critical after a stroke and it’s success depends on good team work between physios, OT, doctors AND THE PATIENT. Doctors need to see themselves as part of the team and should not see themselves as superior to it.
