GMC investigating 30 doctors over online prescribing

Comment

Doctors will soon be easily bypassed completely. If I was on Allopurinol for example I would be immensely frustrated to have to get permission from a doctor to get my repeats. I would want control over it myself and that is consumer power. Professional privilege will be swept away. Don't be lulled by thinking you have specialist knowledge- consumers will choose when to access it not be told.
