Abstract

Individuals in most industrial societies who are, or believe themselves to be, ill can turn to a variety of sources of advice other than health professionals. However, these sources will probably only help with the problems that a person deals with that day. A doctor is often needed to provide additional information, and to interpret and individualise advice for all the problems brought to the consultation by the patient, not just the presenting problem.
