GPs 'should check COPD registers' as thousands may be misdiagnosed

Comment

IDGAF above --- I have now reflected as suggested . In view of the endless redefinition of COPD and its diagnosis/monitoring /treatment by specialist hospital doctors and nurses, perhaps it is time for them to take this hugely difficult disease area back under secondary care ??? Alternatively , stop the relentless crap research which seems to be purely to bolster CVs , sell drugs, and get free holidays to an "educational" event overseas and tell patients 1. stop smoking 2. do some exercise 3. use your inhaler when you've decided the first 2 are too difficult. ( Trelegy for all ?? )
