He is a true jobsworth GP and a committed 'state-employee' to boot, appearing more interested with moving on the queue and meeting quotas for appointment length than anything that actually comprises of treatment. I only rated him 50% on trust because he actually understands how to treat people not using modern, inflexible guidelines, and if I were to explain what I know to a newer, lab-obsessed GP, I'd be easily dismissed. I rated him 50% on listening to people because he has, on occasion, with stern and written prompting, followed a treatment plan expedient to the patient's needs. Being a true 'state-employee' devoted to the profit-motivated agenda (cuts driven, same thing) of the current changes to the health service though, he will happily etch his way out of solutions inconvenient to his senior's machinations of gate-keeping the books, or that threaten his job security by way of not subserviently deferring to inflexible and unscientific 'treatment guidelines.' He really is just the lesser of numerous, pervading evils.
