Of course stress plays a part in script errors
I am disappointed the author of the article on avoiding major prescribing errors (Features, February 23) brushed off stress and heavy workload just by mentioning that GPs 'need to be ever-vigilant, no matter how hurried or tired'. This is appalling from a GP stress and workload are well-known causes of prescribing errors.
