Who pays this Doctor?

A new website has been launched. Who pays this Doctor? And it’s at http://www.whopaysthisdoctor.org/. It is voluntary. But it would be nice to think all British Doctors would rush to sign up and declare their interests.

One would hope clinics of, say; six doctors would do the same. In the USA some clinics are paid fees by Big Pharma to provide data for research. I’m sure that doesn’t happen in the UK though.

Great idea. I hope all doctors sign up immediately. We will see how it progresses.

“The Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) has announced that the 2013 total for funds ‘provided’ to doctors by Big Pharma in the UK is around 38-39 million pounds slightly down on the 2012 level”.
