Oh what a row! Here we have locums who are dead philosophers but lack a leap of faith, locums who actually shudder over the thought of patients not being well treated ( really? - you actually shudder?), Locums (sic) who appears to be a saint walking the earth , locums who feel patronised, locums who threaten... so many angry doctors, but we have yet to hear from the locums who refuse to see emergencies who present yards from them, locums who agree to paperwork and slip away having done none, locums like the one we had in January who asked 85% of his cases to book in within the next week with their "usual doctor" and when challenged said he was "safety netting"... Please. locums, climb off your high moral ground, some of you are great, some of you are crap, just like all doctors, everywhere, and no, you are not worth your weight in gold, you are worth the work you do.
"focused on 'market forces, public sector administrative bureaucracy, under resourcing, inconsistent leadership and a lack of comprehensive, strategic thinking and imagination"
One of the best definitions of the Department of Health I have seen, and definitely the mission statement of any salaried service
You must suspend routine work, do see any patient however who is ill or believes themselves to be ill, don't not don't treat all patients do use online consultations to not treat or make the care of the patient your first concern on a case by case basis neither not but in a position to make a full informed diagnosis nor will you not be sued or the GMC will not pursue you for negligence never always maybe in 1 2 5 years from now or 20 don't do do do all necessary work and all new work and all other works now yesterday thank you get the clap
A stage managed career builder, standing on the shoulders of her colleagues and scampering up the media ladder. Tony unfortunately has given her a helping hand by offering his sympathy - are you OK tony?
There's a limit to how "knackered" a part time professor can get though, isn't there? One or two shifts per week? month? who knows, whatever they are they will be much less "knackering" once back at home - sorry, home office - reading articles on how to manage long term conditions to avoid attendance at casualty ( see research interests:"Current studies include CLAHRC 2: avoiding admissions and attendance in patients with long term conditions")
@ Paul Cundy - no, she won't do that. What Prof Suz will do is continue "researching" clinical areas she knows next to nothing about and are literally none of her business. Like a plumber who wants to review the international wiring regulations, the production of gypsum plaster and how to care for your lawn mower : Research interests _
"Current studies include CLAHRC 2: avoiding admissions and attendance in patients with long term conditions"
Not to worry Professor. Not only has your hospital trust had all its debts written off - after being supported for years by the locality CCG - meaning you will have abundant new toys and staff very soon, you will be picking up the increased demand/ waiting list initiatives from autumn. £2000 per day incentives to "meet demand" will help you get better from your sadness and disappointment..
Now stop it ALL of you. The CQC are the heart and soul of general practice, in a very real sense they are all our souls.
That's good news. We were worried that by autumn it would be so quiet we would have literally nothing to do. Spending a day with the CQC teams will be a real boost to morale and a huge plus for patients.
Poor Primary Care - it really doesn't matter about all those non hospital appointments does it. Still, GPs handle only 0.9% of clinical encounters don't they? They don't? Oh. Well, how about this - all visitors to GPs will hold their breath for the entire consultation - and GPs will not speak at any point. Brilliant? And cheap. And sensible too.
If you aren't happy doing it, well then, just sing this little song
"JDFDI, JDFDI, I know I can I'm sure I can, JDFDI"
Tune: I'm h.a.p.p.y
words: contain just, don't, fucking, do, it
Well said West Country GP - next it will be "all yous GP can do more".
What a sweet essay - are some locums below the school leaving age?
Chocolate jockstraps all round.
Named clinician = nothing. care plan = nothing. clinical lead = political virtue signalling all round.
Is she actually 13, or just her thought process?
11.30 am - start of day in CQC ; zoom meeting called by Ms Pennyworth, Senior Executive Chief Managing Director; assorted Vice Senior Executive Chief Heads online
"the press are ignoring us and we've nothing to do"
"supposing someone notices we are all drawing full salaries even though we are not the NHS?"
"I'm so stressed at home 5 days a week, that's 1 day more than normal"
Help us Chief Pennyworth!!!"
:" not to worry we will restart pointless telephone inspections, call it support calls, have practices running around for days collecting crap for us"
"Genius Chief Head of Bosses Director! Can we close them down as well I love that part, Ive hated all doctors since Mr Smithers at school told me I couldn't be a doctor if I left school at 16"
"Hello little cringing practice, its the CQC here"
"hello CQC sir, please don't close us down"
"not to worry I'll just be on a couple of hours"
"would you like to come and see what we're doing? of course, our terms of service mean we would close the practice to patients for a week and provide our only full hazmat ppe for you?"
"er no, we erm , you see, patients... infection... risk... I'll put you down as inadequate and we will carry out the 8 hour virtual inspection tomorrow, please provide go-pro for all your staff , goodbye!"
Which Gaynor Evans is giving this advice though? The Agony Aunt and Sex Expert on Good Morning, or the Head of Handwashing?
Damn you, coronervirus!
The Government has said that every care home should have a named clinician by Friday this week,to give a course of antibiotics 24 hours before admitting every deteriorating case lacking DNACPR to the nearest district general.
Why do people who have quit professions always feel the need to write articles about better/kinder/stronger/leaner/cheaper general practice? Go away please all bearded gurus, and get a proper job again or keep quiet.
