Why we challenge our doctor client’s expert power

In a survey of 2002 people by Opinium, respondents answered this question:

How trustworthy, if at all, would you say the people in the following professions are generally?

The researchers found that 85 per cent of people found nurses to be the most generally trustworthy, closely followed by 80 per cent of people who trusted doctors. Importantly, the survey asked how trustworthy these people were generally, not just in their area of expertise.
