"Persecuting doctors,failing to protect patients".
Agree with Bob Hodges,the NHS is 'pseudo-communist '.
As an inpatient recently,would have had better care in Chernobyl hospital during a reactor meltdown than my local hospital on an ordinary Friday night.
I certainly remember being taught about it in my London med school circa 1981.
Uncommon but to be considered in differential diagnosis.
Why stop there?
What do Performers lists add??
The U.K. Is small competitively,should mobility not be encouraged eg.why stop an Carfiff GP from working Chester.
In my 25 years as a GP,there were always Dr's who were not good with patients and they usually combined clinical work with other things eg.inventing and supervising appraisal and performers lists etc.
Why do we pretend this is not the case and see the patients on behalf of these tormenting quislings.
This model has been implemented in Wales for some 8-10 years.
What is the governments favourite tactic when it comes to defending NHS England?
- some thing along the lines of,"you ought to be thankful you don't live in socialist controlled Wales."
I know we're not good at looking at best practice elsewhere in the world eg the Antipodes,but come on,how about somewhere that is less than 100 miles from Whitehall,that would make a good start.
Only marrying and having kids perhaps comes close to the feeling of joyous relief you get at retirement.
Really what you are talking about is the shape of a Gaussian distribution curve.
Appraisal/pdp'/CQC etc just push you totally over the hump and down the Right side.
Knowing you have left all that Sh-- behind is so,so cathartic because deep down we all know- no other country puts its Dr's through this- we won't be doing it either in 10 years time.
Roderick Shaw,suggest you Google 'Ponzi scheme'.
Some stand on the sidelines and lob stones,I did'nt.
When I got bullied by the secret police, I resigned and went to Australia for 4 happy years.On my return, I did'nt work again.I did'nt need to ,after a period of 'item per service'fees.(a bit like being a dentist in the UK)
The people who I feel sorry for are the 35-50 age group,too old to retrain and too young to retire.
However even this age group should take some 'Gonadotrophic factors',because they will be working till 75 and get NO Pension when they get there.
I'm sure Charlie Massie et al must be trembling at the thought that there might be a petition going round,that a few contributors may sign at some future time.
The very reason the gmc know that they will get away with there repression is the limp wristed ,impotent reactions you get on here.Meantime a colleague's livelyhood is threatened.ie.they will endure when good people look the other way.
The modus operandi of the gmc(small case) is to create a climate of fear amongst 'ordinary doctors'- ie those who in normal circumstances would have little to fear from an impartial regulatory body.They perpetuate this by means of inquisitions and show trials.
One does not need a comprehensive knowledge of history to know from whom they have copied the model.The 3 great dictators of the 20th century certainly terrorised there society's with similar tactics.
If we require Dr's from the EU,it's because our own ones retire at the soonest moment they can.Medicine remember is supposed to be a vocation.
The reason why this is is that other groups do not have to answer to bodies like the GMC,who are in effect just a branch of the government.
I was bullied at every stage of my NHS career,particularly the 22 years spent as a GP.
There was an intensification post the 2004 contract,what a brilliant idea it was of the BMA to surrender any control and autonomy we had to the administrators.
As a result I am pretty sure that I now suffer from PTSD.
Thanks for everything ,
Tell you what,1 week of item per service Medicare fees will soon make you feel better and recall the feelings of professional worth and autonomy.
Pulse most influential Gp-the ultimate sinicure.
Further---what would be the more likely scenario.
GP partners in Aus selling up there business 's and tuning there back on $300k to come here
OR Brit GP's coming back to UK after 2 yrs + in Aus?
I think we all know the answer,the latter of course needs to cost No money but is it as big a 'Gesture' to satisfy these (basically) actors.
Let's see if I've got this right.
If you trained in Australia they will make it easy for you to come to the UK.
If(like me)you trained in the UK and worked for the NHS for 30 years and then go and practice in Aus,they'll continue to put barriers in your way to returning to UK practice.
Brilliant,are the RCRP fit for purpose?
Best antidote to this news paper twaddle is- you can think what you like but just consider why no one wants the job.
Personally ( notice how everyone today tends to say " me personally" ie. schools just as bad as NHS) I finished at 55 yrs,having done the last 4 in Aus.Much more honest and effective service, because money is exchanged,this focuses the minds of all.
I would have cleaned the loos on a cruise ship with Norovirus(and keep my dignity)than work one More day as an NHS GP's.(hope the 1 day a week crowd at RCGP take note)
Just 'man up'.(that means ladies as well)
Hospital Dr's can strike/work to rule
Gp's can hand back there contracts
Throughout history 'mankind' has been able to adapt to adversity by 'turning the tables'on the adversary.Which is the endangered species now,the 'king of the jungle'or feeble man.
What did the oppressed people of Eastern Europe do under the yoke of communism?
-whinge or organise themselves against the opresser
Outside the daily maelstrom of general practice,life is very pleasant.Annual gaurunteed pension increases paid for by the Superann deductions of the oppressed Dr's---think about it.
Generally we are still a 'green ans pleasant land' .
If we allow the PC driven metropolitan elite 's to Take over--'God help us all'.
Nothing that is 'free'(@125 Billion/year) can be discernibly appreciated by the vast majority.
In reality it does'nt take much to alter behaviour if the cause and effect is obvious.
5p plastic bag anyone ?,I'd sooner take my own wheelbarrow to the shop.
In the meantime dream on- because the will be no tangible outcome and more of Our money will be wasted.
