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

Comment

You see I was teaching my GP registrars yesterday about the difference between the latest NICE recommendation of 1% 10Yrs fracture risk(FRAX or Qfracture calculator)threshold for initiating treatment of biphosphonates and the more logical approach of NOGG by using the assessment chart which adopts 6 to 10% fracture risks depending on age. You just wonder how these guidelines cannot converge and make common senses. Instead , every establishment wants to be territorial, worst of all , being ‘used’ by politicians and technocrats.
