The left hand not knowing what the right hand was doing?
Who would have imagined that.
Why has this been resurrected after 6 years?
Telling patients to get a supportive letter from your Dr is unprofessional and a deliberate attempt to sow discord, shifting the responsibility of payment for supporting information from the DWP -who should be officially requesting it and paying for it , to the patient who should not be paying for it.
Like others have said, we all know who the real enemy is here.
Not only ineffective and irrelevant, but now corrupt and in bed with despots.
So glad I’m not a member.
A new aspiration?
Colleagues, I think we’ve been had.
Might as well carry on with current MDO membership.
Respect to you Kate for keeping going, where many would have not.
Can’t understand why this has taken so long.
This is the best website ever!
Then reduce your workload or walk away.
Hours and hours of work- for what?
Why aren’t our representative organisations insisting on evidence that the process is beneficial?
Then we have to come to some agreement about how acceptable and excessive workload is defined and what can be done about it.
Yes, a waste of time.
But will anyone take any notice?
I’m not into conspiracies, but It makes you wonder whether this was a government objective taking these services out of the NHS, then expecting their cessation on cost grounds ultimately ending up in primary care.
I always find myself surprised that colleagues have such little control over their workload.
15 years waiting for this.
How easily pleased we have become.
Royal colleges should NOT get involved in politics.
Doctor, the dog has just eaten my years supply of pills.
Can I have some more?
‘Perverse incentives ‘
Nothing perverse about not working for peanuts.
Workload, indemnity appraisals and revalidation could all be tolerated if the remuneration reflected this.
Reaching the pension threshold meant increased tax liability on the extra earnings received by not contributing to pension allowing a session reduction.
Working the extra day now would earn about £11, just not worth it.
The lowered pension threshold is entirely the cause of this situation.
