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

Comment

‘’NICE said the new recommendation should have only ‘minimal impact’ on general practice resources.’’ Ha ha ha I‘be got a feeling that they have people monitoring this platform (and similar ones) daily . Our repeated attacks on this ‘living at the top of an ivory tower’ probably did cave in . Now , I think every new guidance will carry this comment like ‘this approach will have minimal impact on general practice resources.’ as a default , from now on . Whether you want to stick up your middle finger to that , I leave it to you .
