New GMC Prescribing Guidance

The GMC has recently published guidance on good practice in prescribing. It has sections which cover what a doctor should do when the full notes are not available and these are relevant to OOH doctors. The board would encourage all doctors to read the guidance which is in the Guidelines section of the handbook/
On a more positive note, we are hopeful that the Adastra-EMIS link will be restored in the near future.
