GPs should be monitored on care home prescribing, says NICE

Comment

yet another 'marker' that creates more work for under-resourced GPs! With all the ways GPs are going to be scrutinised (antibiotic prescribing, cancer referrals etc), won't be any time to do any real medicine.... Whilst it could be helpful to identify sub-standard prescribing and monitoring of medicines (there's a lot of it about), for those who are already doing a good job, why give them the grief of micro-managing and trying to show up GPs...for what purpose other then vilification by NHS England, patients, CCGs, press and GMC! Bye bye NHS, can't say I will miss all these issues
