One in four adults prescribed addictive medicines, says PHE review


Agree with all of above. I've tried this before including patient contract but it just takes time. We are already running at 11.5min/consultation (from BMA study good few years ago, so prob longer now). We can't then add extra 5min every time medication is prescribed. I'm happy to do this if government can fund 20min GP appointment. Over to you DoH
