More evidence ( if it were needed) that this Mickey Mouse college is out of touch with reality.
We all know patients who have come to serious harm or died because of the triage and admitting procedures of local A+E departments.
Is her statement just a diversionary tactic?
I wish all ethnic labelling would end.
Then you die.
Anything in between is a bonus.
What worries me is the morbidity that has been missed or sub optimally managed in the last 3 months, either because the patient was too fearful of seeing a HCP or being referred to hospital, or the hospital rejecting referrals.
We may be sitting on a large number of complaints and lawsuits - why didn’t you try harder to see/ get this patient seen doctor?
In terms of pay, £100K is usually before tax.
Other professionals do much better.
Shocked at the discord generated by this.
Locums will always be a vital part of the workforce.
Employing locums has always been positive for us , some locums being exceptional.
We never expect a locum to perform the full range of tasks that a principal would do, workload has to be modified to suit.
I don’t believe much of what NHSE says.
But this I REALLY don’t believe.
Didn’t think Covid-19 could penetrate the skin?!?
Another thing we are well placed for.
Unless we have a second spike.
Or the virus resistant remaining population?
We need a better solution ASAP.
NHSE has’advised’, not mandated.
Thanks for your advice NHSE.
I thought alternative was going to be a relevant examination which tests competence to work as a GP not the touchy feely current assessment that misses this aspiration widely. Not unexpected from the Mickey Mouse royal college that is the RCGP.
‘GP consultations are down ‘
The opposite seems to be the case and there seems to be no limits in number or timing .
Like others have said it’s all about the PPE.
We’ve all been shafted on this.
I wouldn’t mind knowing whether I’ve already had this infection or not.
Whether this information would influence my clinical practice I am not certain.
Sounds a little like racial profiling, and likely to be full of pitfalls.
A face to face is worth a thousand words and might save hundreds of thousands in compensation.
Hot hubs are currently grossly underused.
Send them there- I thought that’s what they were for?
Work profile has definitely changed.
I have yet to decide whether life has become easier or harder.
Very worried about all the other serious conditions that are not being diagnosed or managed properly against the ethos that COVID is all important.
