GPs told to avoid raft of interventions by royal colleges

Comment

Lawyers rubbing their hands together 1) ageist 2) family members will object if the patient doesn't call of the lawyers, take away the risk of and need to answer vexatious complaints when this is done and support GPs when people are not happy about it. Then there is small chance this will happen. Otherwise, everyone continue as normal, x-raying backs and over treating bp, putting in pacemakers at the end of life and if palliative, offering statins to over 90's......you can't have it both way. Protect doctors against the over regulation and "patient and their relatives" are alway right and can complaint to all and sundry , otherwise take you "guidelines" and put them somewhere else.
