GPs 'practise in fear' due to GMC, LMCs say

Comment

After one of these, no one will take any risk what so ever. I now investigate everything, refer anything and take no risks if any doubt. as it says, I live in fear of the GMC and this has changed my practice to the defensive doctor not worried about resources or the NHS as a whole, just the patient in front of me and my own risk of practicing as a doctor. Give in to all demands for referrals and tests. It costs nothing but will prevent complaints later on. As nike said, "just do it"
