Brodie was chosen to be the ﬁrst a rare combination of surgeon, scientist and president of this Council. He had a Hunterian attitude towards 45 Who’s Who in Orthopedics surgery in that he regarded scientiﬁc research to be the handmaid of practice. He made a lasting contribution towards medical education whereby preliminary instruction in the arts and professional training were greatly improved. By his advocacy of reform of the Royal College of Surgeons, he helped to raise its status as a gov- erning body and enhanced the quality of those whom it approved to practice surgery. For the last few years of his life he suffered from double cataract, for the relief of which Sir William Bowman operated. In July 1862, he began to complain of pain in his right shoulder, caused by malignant disease; he died on October 21. Twenty-eight years before, he had fallen from a pony and dislocated this joint.

Treatments on offer in the surgery fall into two broad categories: counselling and medication buy 5gm bactroban mastercard. A BMJ editorial in 1993 noted that order bactroban 5 gm visa, even though ‘many attempts to evaluate its effectiveness have shown little or no benefit’, counselling had rapidly become established in general practice in Britain (Pringle, Laverty 1993). The authors noted that ‘as well as its general indications in anxiety and depression, and problems with relationships’, counselling had been advocated for ‘smoking cessation, modification of diet, alcohol misuse, postnatal depression, addiction to tranquillisers, and high risk sexual behaviour’. The government-imposed GP contract in 1990 had encouraged the provision of counselling in general practice by agreeing to reimburse up to 70 per cent of the cost. The later growth of fundholding practices gave a further boost to the employment of counsellors in the surgery. The theme of Pringle and Laverty’s editorial was ‘reasons for caution’ about the explosion of counselling in general practice, given the lack of evidence of effectiveness and uncertainties about confidentiality, qualifications and accreditation. There was a generally negative response to their editorial, and particularly to their suggestion that ‘the main reason for GPs’ enthusiasm for 114 THE EXPANSION OF HEALTH counselling may well be a desire to reduce contact with and responsibility for a very demanding group of patients’. One critic insisted that GPs ‘were not just avoiding “heartsink” patients, as the editorial suggests, but recognised the mutual benefit of bringing new skills and knowledge into the practice and extending the range of options within the primary care team’ (Jewell 1993). Counselling was one of those initiatives whose value was considered self-evident. Attempts to investigate its effectiveness were all very well, but should not be allowed to delay its implementa-tion. The provision of counselling in GPs’ surgeries was a radical departure with a number of significant features, not the least of which was the fact that it generally passed without much comment. It indicated that GPs were prepared to provide treatment, within the framework of the primary health care team, for a range of personal problems not previously considered to fall within the sphere of medical practice. Furthermore they were prepared to refer their own patients to unregistered practitioners in a way which, a few years earlier, would have led to a summons to appear before the General Medical Council. As GP Myles Harris, one of the few critics of this trend, pointed out, ‘the idea of the medical register was to protect the public against untested therapies and counselling has no substantial agreed body of scientific evidence to back its claims’ (Harris 1994:24). Harris was concerned that doctors were turning their backs on their traditions of scientific medicine and ‘in allowing counsellors into the NHS we may be deserting medicine for magic’. The fact that the government agreed to subsidise these counselling services indicated that it was ‘ready to treat ordinary human difficulties as illnesses’ (Harris 1994:6). Yet this also carried the danger of allowing the state, through the agency of counsellors, to define ‘what is “normal” in everyday behaviour’.
