A few days ago, gaygay45 said "I self test and would like to self-regulate, but the clinic does not approve this". If a patient chose to stand firm and insist, they could be in for a fight. Before starting, I would like to know what is the legal bottom line?
I once asked this of a GP friend. He told me I would have to insist several times, and eventually sign a paper which agrees the patient is acting against repeated advice of the doctor etc. The notes of the patient would then be suitably annotated.
Then there is the power. Test-strips can be bought without prescription, but not warfarin.
But what is the legal bottom line? What are the experiences of people who insist?
