There was talk about International Women’s Day. Am I wrong in thinking that if there was ever a profession in which men are in the minority, it is mine?

And I was intrigued by the IBMS statement on reflective practice issued in light of the High Court ruling regarding Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba. The statement said a lot without actually saying anything.
This case and ruling worries me…. having been there myself. We will have a future with no medical professionals because you can get far more money by driving a train and not have the worry that an honest mistake will land you in prison.
