NICE urges GPs not to prescribe antibiotics for bronchiolitis


'the number of children who have bronchiolitis and who then develop a bacterial infection is extremely low'. Oh yeah?! And who will NOT prescribe abx and risk that "extremely low" chance of bacterial infection which will potentially ruin you life via GMC? If the GMC looked at it as a risk worth taking for the greater good then no problems. The problem is the use of the retro scope and the manslaughter until proven innocent ( which never happens. Like some one said already, 2 fingers nice, 2 fingers GMC.
