80% of GP antibiotic prescriptions for respiratory conditions 'are too long'


I have a patient on 2 'restricted' antibiotcs for a continuous period of 18 months... while the hospital gets around to re-arranging her revision operation. I flagged it, but nobody else (including microbiology) seems interested. I'm only a GP after all.
