Headline

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

Comment

It’s the GPs problem because we get blamed for everything, didn’t you know! The identified problem of post discharge medication problems isn’t really anything new and, in my experience, has been going on for years. With a workforce in the NHS that’s essentially understaffed and overworked it’s hardly surprising is it? With further budget cuts and cost efficiency savings likely the situation here will certainly worsen. Solution: don’t get ill or be admitted to hospital!
