NICE pushes through guidance limiting GP prescribing options for low back pain


Consider offering ibuprofen as well as paracetamol. Are we insinuating that patients are too stupid to have tried that before they make an appt to sit in a waiting room full of sick people before seeing their GP. Well patient satisfaction rates will be going through the roof i can already see the 'customer reviews' on our website. 'my GP is wonderul managed to drag myself in to the surgery all though i could hardly walk and he told me to keep taking the pills i had in my pocket and go for a run. Grade A service!'
