This morning I heard on the radio that in England there had been an investigation into prescribing by GPs which had found that a totally unacceptable number of errors, some incredibly serious, ie wrong medicine, wrong doze, wrong instructions, were being made. It concluded that many GPs needed to take a course in prescribing and in using the computer system which presumably has drop down options...
It was somewhat surprising to find that the Scottish Daily Express covered the same story as its front page lead, without making mention (at least in the initial paragraphs: I read it in a shop) of the fact that this was an England only audit.
They surely wouldn't want, just before elections, to give the impression that the Scottish Health Service was falling to pieces? No. That would be dishonourable. And heaven knows the Daily Express would never be knowingly dishonourable.
I expect the journos there are just too stupid or too lazy to have bothered with a separate story for their Scottish edition..
