seems mr stone, your fail to understand the semantics of guidance which is guidelines and not rigid laws carved in 'Stone' as you seem to wish them. this is of necessity as they have to be adapted to a almost infinite variety of individual situations by experienced clinicians. they are there to assist in providing best available evidence based practice from the worldwide experts in their field and allow for greater consistency in diagnostic procedures, treatment and care. the difficulties are in accumulating the relevant experience leading to their correct interpretation for all of these different situations and the more so if these situations are less common or junior staff have had less opportunities to put them into practice which is why we have interdisciplinary teams and staff of different levels of skill and expertise and can very quickly draw on that of others in the organisation, nationwide or worldwide as required. and please don't start off again with all of your yes buts we don't have time for your persistent trolling and it drags the level of discussion down on these threads each time if we have to keep bending down to you level to explain everything where it has repeatedly been done before.
