quango than a govt dept, although they advise/affect govt policy. The problem, from my lowly standpoint, seems to be that at a certain level the profession is made up of people who loathe and despise each other, both within our organisation and within the quango concerned with policing our organisation. If I was in government I'd strip all such organisations of their powers and invite the universities to take over. Education should not be left to amateurs. I'd also like to see the education for doctors, nurses and allied health professionals centrally demarcated rather than have each profession declare its own areas of expertise - the turf wars are intensely political (not to mention gendered and with an unhealthy dose of power inequality) ugly, destructive and not in the interests of good patient care.
