GPs should not prescribe antibiotics for impetigo, says NICE


@Holy Smoke Batman Absolutely agree. The principle is fine but unless it is funded properly, is not forced to rush things through, not subject to the external biases of big pharma, patient action groups and charities, and unless it represents broad medical views (that should involve GPs particularly- but not the Steve Field gong chasing types of course) then it will not work. In the meantime it is what it is. The National Institute of Clinical Excrement.
