    I have met Keith and he does seem clued up. He is aware of the impact GET has, and the effectiveness of some supplements, complementary therapies for pain etc. His experience could be useful educationally as GPs are not clued up at all ( at least where i am). He does seem to have the respect of patients.

    Scotland has few specialist resources, these tend to be concentrated ( Edinburgh/ fife/ western isles) and these have some horror stories, both historic and recent.
