GPs to use GOLD standard for COPD

And not before time, either.

I’ve been using the GOLD guidelines to manage my COPD for over 6 years, to my considerable benefit.

It’s taken NICE a long time to publish guidelines ** on the subject, but they have finally got around to advising GPs to classify COPD by degree of severity, using the GOLD system.

Always nice to see the pros playing catch-up 😉
