NICE: Hospitals should refer patients with suspected COPD to GP-led spirometry


NICE should stick to producing guideline for best medical practice and NOT start dictating as to who should do the work as it is a contractual matter and should be left to the commissioners. Nice can say that spirometry should be done for getting a Dx in COPD suspect BUT it has no business telling GPs to do it them self.
