Headline

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

Comment

unfortunately being patient cent red is interpreted by modern society as doing giving whatever is wanted by the masses. Everyone will perceive tamiful as a wonder drug for the flu. You can quote evidence all you like to the contrary but nobody will care. GPs unfortunately have become the dumping ground for everything. This is why this is happening and until GPs man up this kind of nonsense will carry on. there will be some GPs who prescribe this on the grounds of being patient centred. Omission of actions is likely to result in GMC referral. that is the other elephant in the room
