Thanks!

Thanks for all your hard work producing The Good GP. As a GP registrar, I really appreciate how you keep your podcasts evidence-based, practical and succinct. Look forward to listening to your future podcasts!

Great content and very relevant

I had been listening to these podcast for past few months on my drive to work. Absolutely enjoyed with great content, highly informed presenters and very much to the point without wasting anytime. The audio quality is a let down. The music is very clear but sometimes it’s very difficult to hear the presenter especially if you are driving. I crank the volume all the way up and still not good enough. If I forgot to tone it down by the end, the music will be super loud. Please fix the audio issue.

Great program

Thanks for such great podcasts!
Just wondering if you could do a quick podcast on what to do when a naturopath wants very specific bloods to be ordered for a patient, but you don’t deem it to be clinically necessary? What’s our role/professional obligation to the natropath/patient?
Thanks!
