The Uniformity Conundrum

 Mark Twain, a Philosopher wrote that, ‘clothes make a man’ though that is controversial, there is some truth embedded therein. All over the world many organisations and professional groups have adopted one form of dress code or the other over the years with many still undergoing some metamorphosis; a uniform is generally considered as a set of standard clothing worn by members conforming to an agreed principle or rule.

We fought hard to pursue the set ambition but were stopped in our tracks with the many revelations of other health dimensions like physiotherapy, dietetics and radiotherapy just to mention a few. Colleagues were torn between the devil and the deep blue sea, as to which of the programs to pursue? In essence, we were just alerted that " it aint all about the doctors", there was definitely more to health and for that matter 'life' than we seem to know.
