NHS England issues 'letter of comfort' on OTC prescribing for GPs


What a fudge! Do I need a letter of comfort? I've not been accused of a criminal offence! We either prescribe to all or refuse to all - leaving us to decide if someone can't afford it is really unacceptable. We will always get the "entitled Grauniad reader" patient who insists on a script and has the time to make life miserable as the complaint process (usually direct to NHSE thus involving the PAC) grinds through. Let's just get the clarity of NHS prescribable or not.
