If you own a car, so does that make you a car mechanic? No

If have a bank account, does that make you a millionaire? No

If you are employed in a university, does that mean you must be a scholar and have a first class degree? No

If you’re a member of a gym or fitness club, does that mean you are an elite athlete? No

If you own a camera, does that make you professional photographer? No

If you’ve watched a detective programme on TV, does that mean you can solve crimes? No

If you own a computer, does that mean you can design a new computer system? No

If you’re employed by the health service, does that mean you must be a fully qualified doctor? Definitely not!

 

fake-doctorsI don’t know about you, but if there’s one thing that annoys me, it’s people who are not doctors, who think just because they are employed by the health service, that they can give others medical advice.

To those of you are not qualified doctors (or nurses), please stop giving out medical advise to others as you are playing with people’s lives! You don’t know people’s medical history or in fact anything about any medical condition, so please do not try to tell others what medication they should be taking or what treatment they should seek, as you may quite literally kill them with your advise!

To those of you who seek or get medical advice from friends/colleagues/neighbours etc who are not qualified doctors (or nurses), please disregard any advise these people may give you no matter how knowledgeable they seem, or how much you trust them, as they have no medical qualifications so have no grounds to give you advise on medication or treatment. Just remember that self-medicating or treating some illnesses yourself, may cause you serious harm.

    That really pisses me off to when folk that aren’t docs givin out advise on wot tablets I should or shouldn’t take.Wot do they no! I just ignore them so I cannt kill myself so your advise is good. there should be a law about folk givin out medical advise wi no qualifications as its downright dangerous and there are idiots out there who don’t realise how dangerous these folks advise could be.
    Thanks for reminding everyone not to listen to these unqualified folk
