  1. This is an interesting post from Dr Alf which indicates that perhaps in this rare instance Teutonic efficiency ,precision and thoroughness needs to be slightly moderated until overall qualified doctor numbers rise to a point where there is a modest contingency buffer to buttress overall medical provision against overall population numbers.
