Health chiefs considering putting antibiotic prescribing targets into GP contract


Gp rise 4% , hopsital rise 12% other community prescriber 32%. do they not see that GP constrait on use is driving patient to access AED/WIC and other sources where lack of familiarity with the patient and less experienced staff are more likely to issue antibiotic. For once bite the bullet and tackle the issue- a consumerist drive for "a pill for every ill" fuelled by political ideology. I wear my multiple complaints about declining Antibiotic with pride- everyone is alive and able to complain despite my declination- up to the point where the weight of paper means the GMC will strike me off because they believe" theres no smoke without fire"
