Following on from Angela Constance’s question, I think that it is important that there is the capacity to implement the review findings and subsequent legislation. With that in mind, will the review look at the considerable time pressures that our general practitioners and other healthcare professionals are under during their patient consultations, which might prohibit their exploring all potential treatment options and implementing any review findings?
