Our now retired GP of many years told us that he did not see enough patients with P to know much about the condition, let alone prescribe meds.and he would just take the lead from our consultant and prescribe what was directed by them.
I think that this is the case for many doctors, SO, GP's should know the symptoms of P without having to be told them in words of one syllable and what the basic treatments are!! Does anyone only rely on their GP to prescribe meds. for P? Everyone with P should be under the care of a neurologist, surely?
Any GP who has a suspicion that it may be P should immediately refer that person to a consultant, IMO, and not mess about with prescribing meds. that they are not familiar with due to little experience of the condition.
Sorry, but this booklet is, or may be, a waste of time and valuable resources that could be better spent. It will arrive by post, presumably, and just be filed away, or worse, put in the bin with all the other material that arrives at their desks daily.It may not even be seen by them, just a letter opener in the surgery.
