Consider stopping treatment with 'limited benefit' in multimorbidity, advises NICE


Hopefully there will be a bit of detail coming with this guidance as to counts as a long term condition. Under my own definition this would mean 90% of the over 65's. We need funding and time to do this. And withdrawing treatment will be a medico legal risk I for one do not wish to take, as when something goes wrong we won't be supported.
