Review everyone on paracetamol for back pain, recommends NICE advisor


Would be great if these suggested other options existed on the NHS. Patients are only going to ask for what is free. If you recommend yoga classes and no meds they will only see other GP of go to OOH of A&E and get paracetamol aswell as NSAIDs, benzodiazepine and TCA to follow up with own gp to continue!!!
