Headline

GPs defending patient complaints to be asked which guidelines they followed

Comment

NICE should be closed and it's budget restored to primary care where the money can be put to work. The whole guidelines thing needs a massive rethink. They are hugely complex, almost impossible to follow, rarely relevant to the complexity of real world patients, they increase our risk of complaints and litigation, and seem mainly to benefit drug companies and people who sell medical stuff. Overall I see very little benefit here, except for the rich and powerful.
