GPs to develop list of unnecessary interventions under scheme to tackle overtreatment


Solicitors and litigation organisations are currently running riot with no one in a position to stop this proliferation of actions against an easy target such as an underfunded NHS prepared to do anything.

If however you want to control costs then control lawyers who raise costs of 50 k for work which would ordinarily be worth 1k !!
