GPs told to review aspirin use in patients with atrial fibrillation


So how exactly is changing someone off aspirin onto something that has been proven to work at their annual review unfunded exactly? Surely keeping patients meds up to date with current research is a core aspect of the job? I mean, it's hardly cutting edge stuff is it? Whilst I object to the ever increasing pointless paper pushing exercises were are commanded to do by those in ivory towers, this could actually stop one of your punters having a devastating stroke!
