GPs set to face flurry of requests from schools under new legislation

Comment

There is another objection to asking GPs to become responsible for detailing the support children with medical needs have in a school situation: GPs don't on the whole have either training in Occupational Health or education - and have no knowledge of the "workplace" (school) so would not be in a position to advise on the physical and organisational adaptations the school would need to make to accomodate the needs of the individual child.
