It's different in Scotland - Part 1
Keeping up to date with all aspects of knowledge that might be expected of a general practitioner in the current era becomes ever more challenging. Andrew Ayre, Partner, Greaves West & Ayre reflects on his experiences on the Scottish border.
For those of us practising on or near our national borders this requires an additional element as, increasingly, while I have gone through my professional life, more and more things have become “different in Scotland”.
As administrations have become more devolved this has become increasingly more so from the days when I first qualified. In training courses, certainly those delivered on the English side of the border, these differences are by and large ignored with a general caveat that “it’s different in Scotland” without any attempt to explain in what ways.
