CQC to publish practices’ antibiotic and benzodiazepine prescribing data


You cannot refuse to register a patient on the grounds they are a benzodiazepine addict If you supply them Professor Field will report you to the responsible officer If you do not the patient will complain and you will be obliged to report this in your appraisal to the representative of the responsible officer The responsible officers themselves remain mute,what precisely are their criteria and standards here Perhaps the way forward would be secondary care benzodiazepine clinics An expert consensus gp committeee of 26 GP,s with one consultant representative and an expert patient should be convened to produce guidelines for secondary care on establishing these clinics
