GPs to monitor mental health of all patients who own guns

Comment

To Dr Paul Cundy I don't get it: we don't have to respond? It pretty much says we do. And as for a "memory sweep": are you insane? No competent professional would agree to doing this without looking at the notes just in case my partners have recently Prozaced him. Then we've got to remember the bloody Read code and add it. 10 seconds? It takes that long to load a patient I seriously doubt you'll be eligible to get another shotgun licence with that type of thought disorder. Oh well, I'm an inner city gp. We don't have to worry about licences here...
