This guideline is mainly relevant for secondary care and doesn’t really change our practice. There are a few useful bits for us.

General Information:

  • Stop Smoking – encourage this as has a huge impact on relapse rates
  • Fertility – ensure women are aware of the impact of medication / surgery on their fertility.
  • Osteopenia and fracture risk – ensure you assess patients for fracture risk as per the recent NICE guideline. Remember that patients may have low BMI or frequent use of steroids which also increases risk.

"I really like LocumDeck. Before, I was doing everything myself. It was a nightmare! Keeping a record of who has paid, chasing them – with LocumDeck, all that goes away. All you have to do is just book your sessions and work.

Doing remote sessions through LocumDeck has also been a very nice experience. The practices assign the patients very thoughtfully, considering the limitation of remote consultation, and I have developed a very good working relationships with them."
