As far as they pay the fee, I don't mind checking them only once.
well said Chaand, Thank you.
I think you got disheartedned by view of few narrow minded poeple who don't work and not welling to do anything but wanting every thing for granted. We already pay tax from every single pence we earn but HMRC should turn their face to google, Amazon, Starbuck , etc to get tax. I don't believe poverty in this country at all or people have not seen what is poverty.
I think Dr.Singer should consult his Defence Union.
Dr.Syed, be proud of your motivation and keep going what you do. The poorest in this coountry can afford to buy a pack of ciggret daily but cannot afford to coontribue to their health?? and sadly some GPs disagree with it!!!
Dr.Seyd , Don't worry Soon or later you will win and those who oppose you now, later they themselves would vote before you ,I hope it would not be too late when remaining of GPs fly to australia, Canada, NZ, gulf coountries and NHS would pay more to recruit GPs if could to repalce those who left country):
Well, GMC lost case of Dr.Bawa-garba and now looking into deep to find another case, particularly to target IMGs. There could be a case of fraud in any aspect of life but does not mean all 3000 IMGs are fruad and to be checked. This the GNC fee we pay for it to be spent on these issues?
Well, whenever you talk about NHS cost, a group of bureacrats in RCGP and NHS bring the issue of human rights and stop any action of saving NHS and its cost. Don't waste your time and keep calm, carry on.
In a conservative society like the UK it will not happen until NHS collapses and then the people , politician and NHS staff would realise it need changes. lets wait for it.
Well said, How many more GPs are on the way to off shore destinies, RCGP/CCGs,NHS England all know about it but hey keep silent,Why?
We already have this in our practice and working well. no more abx for non-sense cold and cough, viral URTI, non-infective COPD/Asthma exacerbations, etc.
I agree with Dr.Shaba Nabi, HV is a waste of time. IF somebody is so ill to make it to come then they need ambulance, if they can then they should come to the practice. Also we should think of next generation who think every things would be like this for ever when they are a bit older in this climate of pressurised heathen service. I went to a HV , a young man unnecessarily called for HV and I don't know why he could not come to the practice.
The DoH should take over from GMC as a regulation body and health professionals to run this body not others.
Oh, interestingly, the GMC found revalidation does not work but they continue this non-sense programme for What?
I agree with Dr.Ashcroft as FeNo is better and easy to have an asthma tested and diagnosed.
Lets stick with NICE guidance.
A very good idea. Why not in England and Wales?
At least thanks from Scotland that pioneers to bring changes and England learns from it.
Hope this change happens sooner.
Article after article, voices in media, GMC in front of Health selected committee, all and all means something is wrong in GMS. If any survey to be carried out among doctors how many of us have confidence in GMS, the rate would be at the bottom. does't it mean that the GMC is no value any-longer?
Good article, spotted quite well. Instead of CSA exam, it was better to call this exam as BME filtration exam. I hope RCGP would conclude sooner that this exam is not fit for purpose and those examiners who failed BME doctors on the basis of ethnicity/colour/accent/etc to be open and bring into light the fact they judged with bias.
IDGAF, you are right, don't take Truth Finder's comments seriously.
A good practice always is good and those who don't take it seriously, soon or later would see it in real life as a complaint or standing in front of GMC/MPTS.
Lets don't assume/ignore/keep eyes blind but to practice safely and vigilantly.
Paul Cundy, I don't know if you know anything about guidelines and evidence based medicine. What ere you are practising medicine. Are you happy for your family to be treated by a GP who has no touch with guidelines, prescriptions and its side effects?
would you not criticise them first?
What IDGAF said is true, we need to change our practice for the sake of good practice and not only be aware of standing before GMC/MPTS,but to deliver a good care to patients. lets at least be honest to ourselves that mistakes are there and to try to correct it rather arrogantly criticise nonsense others good comments.
Nigel telling the facts. I wonder in what NHS climate daily we work in 21st century and while we name it civilisation ):
