GPs should be monitored on care home prescribing, says NICE


This really is patronising micro-management! Of course GPs should write indications for PRN meds and patients should get a med review. That already happens for the most part and when it doesn't that's wrong so I don't know why NICE need to make a whole recommendation stating the obvious. What next patients with Diabetes should be told to exercise and lose weight.. wait they've already done that one! ha ha Doctors should treat patients appropriately and given the time and resources they will. Some nursing home residents may not get a review due to the lack of resources these days and the worried well clogging up the surgery.
