Today the Scottish Parliament Petitions Committee published their response from the Royal College of Physicians on our Thyroid and Adrenal petition, PE01463. It was really quite shocking in it’s complete refusal to engage and yet I don’t know why I am shocked.
Sir Richard Thompson, president of the RCP says “We do not intend to respond to the petition. This is because we have already responded over a period of time in England, and produced our official response.”
What an attitude to take. An official response given in 2011 which raised more questions than it answered and in England! Aren’t we the lucky ones in Scotland?
