​'Clinical uncertainty' has led to asthma meds being overused by GPs


What do you expect? No antibiotics, blamed for the slightest thing from others with crystal ball hind sight. The system blaming us with words like "delayed" referrals, "not investigated", "nothing was given" "nothing was done". Whipping GPs for using proper clinical sense. You reap what you sow. The system wants this and it is what they expect GPs to do when on trial, so expect more scripts, more referrals, more investigations until the system collapses. Patients and doctors are all responding to the government stoking up demand. Just think what if there is a complain or if I am sued for not prescribing......what would the daily mail say.
