GPs 'bullied' into bulk prescribing flu medicine to whole care homes without necessary testing

Comment

If a member of my family was prescribed tamiflu without INFOMED consent I would make a formal complaint. I would not prescribe it without discussion with the individual patient. Full stop. In my view signing a prescription without an assessment of risk and benefit and a discussion with the individual patient is negligent.
