CONCLUSIONS: Almost a fifth of middle-aged adults prescribed medicines are exposed to PIP, as defined by the PROMPT criteria.

NHS Health Checks: Equity and outcomes 2009-17: An observational study.
CONCLUSIONS: NHS Health Checks uptake remains low. Attendees were more likely than non-attendees to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, hypertension and CKD and receive treatment with statins and antihypertensives. Most attendees received neither treatment nor referral. Of those eligible for statins, fewer than 10% were treated.

Nortriptyline for pain in knee osteoarthritis in general practice: a double blind randomised controlled trial.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee is a common cause of chronic pain. The currently available analgesics have limited efficacy and may be poorly tolerated. AIM: To investigate the analgesic efficacy of nortriptyline in people with knee OA. DESIGN AND SETTING: A two-arm parallel-group 1:1 double blind randomised placebo-controlled trial. Participants were recruited from orthopaedic outpatient clinics, primary care, and by public advertising. METHOD: Adults with knee OA and with pain rated as>20 points on the 50 point Western Ontario and McMaster University (WOMAC) pain sub-scale ...

The impact of severe mental illness on healthcare use and health outcomes for people with type 2 diabetes.
CONCLUSION: Monitoring of metabolic measurements was comparable for people with diabetes with and without SMI. Increased mortality rates observed in SMI may be attributable to under-diagnosis of CVD and delays in treatment.

Changing media depictions of remote consulting in COVID-19: analysis of UK newspapers.
CONCLUSION: As the first wave of the pandemic came and went, media depictions of remote consulting evolved from an 'efficiency and safety' narrative to a 'risks, inequalities, and lack of choice' narrative. To restore public trust in general practice, public communication should emphasise the wide menu of consulting options now available to patients and measures being taken to assure safety and avoid inequity.

Primary care consultation length by deprivation and multimorbidity in England: an observational study using electronic patient records.
CONCLUSION: GPs in England spend longer with patients who have more conditions, but, at all multimorbidity levels, those in deprived areas have less time per GP consultation. Further research is needed to assess the impact of consultation length on patient and system outcomes for those with multimorbidity.
