NHS forced to admit sepsis guidance is 'difficult' as GPs switch off alerts


Dr Stockley said: ‘The numbers will not always give you the right answer, which is why the clinical systems tend to over trigger. You should always use your clinical judgement to weigh the risk.’ OMG , how long does it take for academics to realise the difference between textbook thinking (what computer systems are implementing) and clinical judgement and discretion exercised by experienced GPs in the frontline? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. But then again , NHSE and DoH simply want to kill off us(older GPs) because we are too f**king expensive.......
