GPs to refer more patients with low-risk cancer symptoms under new NICE guidance


As a clinician I have concerns about effect of this on my patient. But the devil in me tells me to forget all that good nature and just refer everyone with minor symptoms as the guidance suggests. After all, the country has decided to embrace NICE and pile work on primary care to the point we no longer have time to deal with patient in sympathetic and individual manner. it's easier (for me, not to my secondary care colleagues) to follow guideline and blindly refer.
