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

Comment

each GP who has been asked to prscribe this (whether they hve done it or not) should make a formal complaint in handling of this issue. ask for evidence on prescribing tamiflu are risks vs benefits discussed with each pt / family members? those GPs who have already prescribed tamiflu in the fashion mentioned above are at high risk of getting complaints including if my family member was prescribed without any discussion. care homes targetted to prevent avoidable admissions without any evidence this surely is criminal the care homes putting such pressures on GPs should be scrutinised by CQC for breaking pt-doctor trust asking for tamiflu for their residents without any consent.
