City-based independent practitioners are best-placed for this smart looker, says our motoring correspondent Dr Tony Rimmer.

When the writing is on the wall, we all do well to take notice. In private practice, when certain interventions or procedures become superseded by more modern practice, we stop offering them and focus on the new.

Also, independent medical practice is not immune to trends and fashions. If clients stop asking for a particular service and there is greater demand for others, we will, if clinical indications still apply, tailor our offerings accordingly.

In the world of cars, the current trend is to focus on petrol power instead of diesel, as the environment issues associated with diesel particulates has frightened away most buyers. Green issues have become fashionable, so more and more people, including us medics, are looking at electrified cars.
