Government medicine regulator launches major opioids review to cut prescribing

Comment

Just this week we had a patient come in requesting we prescribe long term dihydrocodeine as the pain specialist they had consulted had recommended this( there was a letter to back this up) What hope in hell have we as 'just GPs' of turning the tide on this opioid epidemic when 'the specialists'are recommending them ?
