Doctors slam GPs for disguising health screen as a birthday card
Doctors have panned a UK general practice that ‘smuggled’ a frailty questionnaire to an elderly woman by disguising it as a birthday card.
Sarah Chapman, an editor with a Cochrane UK-supported health blog, kick-started the social media pile-on when she shared her outrage over the card, sent to her octogenarian mother, on Twitter:
Horrified at this health screening questionnaire disguised as a birthday card & sent to Mum by her GP Practice... Thoughts tweeps? @mgtmccartney @Trisha_the_doc @Laconic_doc @trishgreenhalgh @DrTerryQuinn
