Health chiefs considering putting antibiotic prescribing targets into GP contract


Sure, why not? Go a head. After all seeing as CQC already has same agenda, we might as well do this now rather then wait for GPC to tell us how bravely they fought in the contract negotiations and won nuff all, but still a historic victory in their eyes. I'll refuse to prescribe any rescue packs and will refer any patient that might need AB to AED for assessment, even for a simple UTI. Secondary care can prescribe it then. My stats would be fantastic at the expense of swamped AED. Or these simpletons at PHE can learn quality in medicine isn't as simple as low AB prescribing and leave us alone. Seriously, do these guys ever look up from their excel files and think about what they are saying?
