This is the latest in a series of bizarre questions and responses by a GP who is a doctor and the man behind one of the UK’s most controversial ‘alternative’ health services.
In the interview, the GP, who did not want to be named, explained that he is an ‘expert’ in alternative medicine and claimed that his clients are the ‘people who will tell you the truth’.
‘They want to know if it’s real,’ he said.
‘If they’re telling the truth, I can’t make any difference.
I can only tell you what they are saying, and if they’re lying, then you can’t tell them the truth.’
He then made the assertion that he does not know what a ‘health service’ is, because he does ‘not understand how they are supposed to treat you’.
The GP, whose real name is Dr Andrew Davies, has been at the centre of controversy before, after a series in which he claimed that some patients were being poisoned by ‘foreign agents’.
In October, he was questioned by the Independent Police Complaints Commission over allegations that he had breached the Freedom of Information Act, but has so far refused to be interviewed.
Dr Andrew Davies has been a GP in London for seven years.
His controversial views have been branded ‘anti-vaccination’, ‘anti’ gay marriage and ‘anti gay people’ by opponents, who have labelled him ‘an anti-gay doctor’.
Dr Davies has also said that he would ‘absolutely’ like to see the country decriminalise homosexuality.
He told the Independent: ‘I think that it’s very important that people be able to live their lives as they want.
There are a lot of things in life that we should be able, at the moment, to do without interference.
That’s why I do not think it’s possible for me to prescribe drugs or any medical treatment that would be harmful or wrong to anyone, whether gay or straight.
I do not believe that our society is prepared to have a society where people who do not conform to our society are able to have those freedoms.
