More GPs face restrictions on OTC prescribing


A political decision like this needs a politician to make it. Make these items non FP10-able and the regional bans/surveys/ consultations all go away. But Jezza and his acolytes would rather we GPs have a “responsibility discussion” 30 times a day and get them off the hook. I’m afraid I’ll still be giving hot toddlers calpol until Mr Hunt removes my ability to. Two fingers rampant to this nonsense otherwise. The absence of national decision making should not put us all in the firing line.
