The patient has been diagnosed with a condition by a specialist, unknown to the GP. The specialist prescribes a medication. A month later the patient visits his GP, but three days prior to his appointment he discontinues the medication prescribed by the specialist.
What should the GP do:
- He should advise the patient to resume the medication.
- He should advise the patient not to resume the medication until the GP has seen the report from the specialist.
- He should not advise anything until seeing the specialist's report.
