NICE review finds new strep A test could help GPs reduce antibiotics for sore throat


Does the 'Department of Health and Social Care’s chief medical officer' have to deal with personal complaints about him? Tonsils are covered in bacteria. That's what they are there for (protecting the most vulnerable entry to your body or somewhat). Finding 'bugs on your tonsils' means nothing! PS 'Family Doctors' in USA do these tests routinely and give abx and charge like a 'Wounded Rhino' and call it 'Best Practice'.
