Massive End Game appreciation goes to South Warwickshire Clinical Commissioning Group, for this beautifully worded admission of ignorance in a recent finance report: “The complexity of the issues involved, and the quality and paucity of data available mean that it is presently not possible to confidently assert that the CCG view of the world is entirely correct.”

Socrates himself could not have put it better. Still, while it’s philosophically true of all sentient beings, it is not a truth often heard expressed by NHS commissioning organisations.

Or doctors, for that matter.
