NHS Choices removes 200 reviews over suspicions of practice staff involvement

Comment

Sometimes the best medicine dispensed by the best doctors is saying 'No'. However well one says this there will always be individuals who feel that they are being deprived of their rights and respond accordingly. But GP is not some sort of popularity contest and we should be prepared to accept that this sort of thing is going to happen and treat it with the contempt it deserves. Frankly I stopped looking at our NHS Choices comments years ago and we made a practice decision not to respond to any comments whether positive or negative. I would commend this approach to all.
