I consider the Royal College as a very able and knowledgable society, GPs are already doing this where required, however if GPs have to discuss the medication in some detail with each and every patient, they must have at least 20 minutes consultation time.
Nice write up;
First of all let us ensure that whatever funding is allocated by the Government reaches its right destination
1. NHS England approved funds to improve the premises but the CCGs are sending that money back due to reasons best known to them
2. Government allocated funds for the struggling practices, but no one knows where those funds are and who will get the money as surgeries are still closing down due to lack of funds to recruit additional GPs
