Headline

GPs to be asked to 'peer review' all referrals

Comment

there is some evidence that if done correctly - which includes finding time and funding - this can be seen as a very positive quality exercise by the referring doctors especially if its done retrospectively in a peer supported way with careful attention paid to how the feedback is given by whom and about what. what you dont do is obsess about guidance, have non gps giving the feedback - do it in a negative critical way. of course anything nhs e implements will be done badly and for the wrong reasons... so im against it.. but there is some merit...
