DH to launch crackdown on prescribing errors

Comment

I've never really understood the transfer of prescribing from secondary to primary care. Anyone looking on would see it as an accident waiting to happen. If I am not certain of the exact regime I write for clarification. My biggest pet peeve is the "vitamin D low please prescribe according to local protocol".... not until you've discussed it with the patient yourself, and you can read the protocol and tell me the exact dose and duration
