GPs forced to undertake training in 'motivational interviewing'


Arrogant, authoritarian, unprecedented, unproven. And negligent and illogical to force practices to use their limited human resources which overall will have negative impacts. It is immoral to investigate overprescribing without also investigating under prescribing. This heavy handedness is about cutting costs and increased rationing for NHS patients, with 'medicines adherence' being used to further restrict our clinical freedoms that are essential for optimising patient care.
