MPs demand end to 'perverse' cost to GPs of testing before antibiotic prescribing

Comment

Hmmm? is this a first for the NHS- a group of MP's that actually showed some commonsense???!!!.so POCT has a cost in time and money?? who would have thought? next bright idea-educate pt's to ask for the test rather than the treatment??How much will that cost? then do a cost benefit analysis that suggests that doing the right thing is too expensive- so pass the buck back to the GP !!
