GPs decline hospital requests to give adults HIB vaccine

Comment

Imagine a scenario where the GP refuses and the patient subsequently contracts pneumonia and dies.Do you think the court will accept the defence "the consultant should have done it,not me"?The GMC imposes a duty on us to always act in the best interests of the patient and that is what the court will consider.The politics is immaterial.
