GeneralWhy doctors suck today PinprotectorOriginalGriff7-Jan-14 8:20 
Stupid doctors! Herself has arthritis in her hip, and has been on Buprenorphine patches for a few years - they slow release a tiny amount of morphine (20ug/hr, or 0.48mg/day) from a patch that lasts a week. But...in the interests of cost saving the local doctors practice is moving everyone away from the patch (which works) and onto sustained release morphine capsules - 60mg/day (which don't work as well at all and does rather attract the attention of drugs dogs).
 
So, it's time to organise her repeat prescription on the medical computer system - which works, much better than the paper system was - and...no patches, no capsules, just the other bits and bobs she takes on a regular basis...
 
So now I have to go down there and ask for seriously controlled drugs tomorrow because the stupid doctor hasn't updated her end of the system! Grrrrr....
Never underestimate the power of stupid things in large numbers
