GPs expected to provide 24/7 'decision support' under proposed out-of-hours revamp

Comment

I don't, in general, make decisions (or offer 'decision support') without having seen the patient. Unfashionable, but there you are. 'Decision Support' sounds very much to me like being on the end of a phone in order to take responsibility for clinical situations that we don't have enough knowledge of to comment. I'm not keen, frankly.
