When it's time for GPs to say 'it's not our problem'
From Dr Alex Milne
Regarding Dr Lal Mandal's letter about the poorly completed dentist's prescription he was asked to complete properly (Letters,
18 January), I sincerely hope
that Dr Mandal did not
issue a replacement
The obvious way to deal with this was to send the patient back to the dentist for him to make the necessary alterations.
I would also have been unhappy with the pharmacist who told the patient to bring this back to me.
Why do these problems always seem to end up back with the GP?
Until we are more willing
to say 'No, this is not my problem', we will continue
to get things like this sent
