I really do now want to emigrate
Deary me what a lot of meaningless managerial verbiage
So stating the bleeding obvious was worth £250,000 ?
Yes I would say 5 sessions minimum frontline working i.e. Actually seeing patients
Agree. Lots of GPs sitting around in lots of meetings at the PCN is not going to solve anything. It will make things worse as it will take doctors away from the frontline, which is where they are desperately needed.
Totally agree with above. 31.8 million is a massive amount just to be accounted for by GP at hand ..
The partnership model will die slowly as : hardly any young GPs will be partners, there will a joint and several liability 'crisis' for many partnerships mainly related to premises leases, super-practices which are run by corporate type, patient avoidant GPs are not real partnerships, PCN mean effectively the independent contractor model no longer exists, service charges after Brexit will go up exponentially due to struggling landlords and will bankrupt some practices, GP is totally over-managed and over-regulated mainly due to the power dynamics of the 'management class' GPs in Primary Care, who pay themselves large amounts of money to sit around in endless stupid meetings ( which could easily be done for free in lunch hours) who really should get down onto the frontline NOW and starting seeing some f****ing patients. Rant over.
Yes PCNs will mean lots of GPs sitting around in mostly pointless meetings whilst their colleagues are in the war zone that is frontline practice.. the ' management class' of General Practice and the corporate GPs who pay themselves lots of money to sit around in stupid board meetings have a lot to answer for..
I think the title should be I first mistakenly read it : 'why are we promoting the physicians associate role?'
It seems a huge amount of money to be in deficit just be accounted for by GP@hand...
Agree there is absolutely NO substitute to seeing patients face to face when they are ill, and in fact it is- as this story shows- sometimes dangerous for both patients and doctors not to...
Predictable fudge. Hardly any young GPs want to be partners; super practices are a liability time-bomb ; no one wants to be full time ; the numbers of partners are in free fall ; with federations and network working GP partners can in no way be called independent contractors ; the partnership model will have collapsed within 5 years or earlier
Partnership will die out - who in their right mind would accept the risk of unlimited personal and joint and several liability in the modern day nhs. Superpartnerships are a liability time-bomb waiting to explode...
Yes agree GPs need far more protection and are very vulnerable. I also detest those GPs who avoid the risk of seeing patients by paying themselves large amounts of money to sit in pointless board meetings etc etc whilst they leave their brave colleagues at the frontline in fewer and fewer numbers ,along it ,ore unsafe for everyone. Time for the GP 'executives' to start seeing patients again please...
Absolutely right ! The only people who worry about DNAs are those who don't actually see patients. Unfortunately there now seems to be an increasing cadre of 'executive' GPs who fall into this category...
Yes agree with David Banner - what a waste of money to not even state what is obvious to any sentient GP
It Is a case of too many cooks spoil the broth...it's the same with MDTs. Paradoxically if often creates unnecessary work
Totally right Northwest doc
Wearables and these campaigns are driving millions of well people into people crippled with Health Anxiety...just leave people alone
Exactly - it's not even a proper vitamin but a steroid pre-cursor. Prof Tim Spector excellent on this - massive over-medicalisation of normal healthy people being told they have an illness. Target JUST at risk groups for testing.
