I refer to your feature on how GP practices are ignoring clinical evidence. Colleagues here at the National Association of Primary Care acknowledge that most GPs are drowning in a sea of evidence-based knowledge and guidelines, writes Johnny Marshall
My view of how to rescue them is to develop information systems that provide immediate support to clinicians at the desktop and that give them the information to support the delivery of personalised care to patients. This would be a sounder investment than many previous NHS IT projects.
