"commercial databases (eg www.doctorsbaguk.com) that store data about drugs in the
GP's bag can be useful to alert you when drugs go out of date. Record origin, batch
number, and expiry date of all drugs administered to patients or dispensed to them
to take themselves."
"All GPs should have available, and be able to use the necessary equipment
and drugs to enable him/her to respond appropriately to medical emergencies."
♦"The exemplary GP has up-to-date emergency equipment and
drugs, and ensures that they are available for any doctor eg.a locum, working
in the practice."
♦"The unacceptable GP has insufficient emergency drugs or equipment,
or has drugs that are out-of-date."
