Consultants' fees should be tripled

I am writing in response to a ridiculous rant 'Professionals must cut fees' (Letters, February 16) by Philip Green from Malahide.

When Philip next visits his cardiologist complaining of palpitations he will reluctantly hand over €160. I say this is not enough. Triple the fee.

You see, Philip's physician will have spent six years in university, then six years overworked and underpaid as a trainee in a public hospital.
