GPs urged to be 'vigilant' as elderly 'harmed' by hospital prescribing

Comment

Yet the recent consultation on supplying medications after hospital admissions only required trusts to give 7 days of meds, not 14, thus ensuring every complex blister pack multi-morbid patient with new meds has to have their meds updated urgently, rather than in a more structured way across the GP surgery working week. I highlighted this risk in the national consultation and it was obviously ignored. Why would you choose to add more urgent tasks to primary care as a matter of policy?
