Experts warn of 'troubling' cuts to QOF mental health indicators

Comment

Maybe if psychiatric experts are so concerned regarding cardiovascular risk then the mental health teams and psychiatrists should be monitoring these patients. Not everything has to come to GPs to do - we are drowning at the bottom of the NHS ocean. Swamped by everything that no-one else in NHS wants to do. Prescibe , chase, monitor, refer , benefits notes, sick notes post op. Let us use clinical judgement, manage our patients appropriately, refer for episodes of care which are completed prior to patient coming back to GP.
