Headline

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

Comment

The group looking at this is a wide ranging group including a gmail group where lots of us non politicos can read the evidence behind things. I do not have the time or intelligence to offer much to the group but in reading evidence from them which is digested from high quality work this group is trying to challange an issue head on which we've ignored for years. I feel the anxiety of GPs and the pressure to test, prescribe and refer. But we all see patients harmed duue to interventions- how many worried well clutching private scans etc.....
