不作不死。(Bù zuò bù sǐ.) — If you don't do foolish things you won't end up in tragedy.
PCN is a voluntary DES and there is no compulsion to go ahead and join up. Complete disagree with your bullet analogy. GPs should have walked away from this en masse sending a powerful signal that it is poorly thought out. Instead most signed up and are now complaining.
It is unacceptable for frontline PRIMARY CARE staff to have inadequate FFP protection. Furthermore expecting frontline staff to engage in high risk visiting activity flies in the face of advice of social distancing. One potentially becomes a vector to transmit a virus of which information is still being obtained.
Nobody in primary care is being reassured by the government's comments. Why does Dr.Harries specifically not mention GPs but instead uses the term 'other workers'. Who are these? Why the ambiguity? On the contrary we should ask questions and challenge the government because if we do not we and our patients will suffer. All too easy to say we should all be united when clearly we are treated with disdfain with stickers being put on expired boxes of masks of limited value as a prime example.
@thinking of Oz and Una Coales
In fact my speech in favour of the motion focussed on the lack of safety of home visits which interestingly a significant number of GPs did not comment on.
This is something that has been neglected for too long.
This article does not reflect the number of different speeches that were made regarding the subject. It would have been great if the public could have seen videos of all the different views voiced by of all of those who participated in the debate and consented for recording etc.
Maybe the registrar should not be getting angry due to complexities of diagnosis given what you have described?
poor pay poor working condtions. No surprises
a report is sufficient thanks lest we be told GP best placed to interpret various imaging. People will have to learn to waot for reports etc. THE EVERYTHING now approach must end
WHAT A JOKE! Does GPC actually negotiate anything? Expect this to follow in England with the delightful pcn nonsense
you can certainly help others but it is ridiculous to do this for free especially when the 'others' you talk of are happy to sue at every avenue. sad reality is uk public do not care at all for doctors' welfare.
Lots of people are abusing the system. It's not a 'psychological projection' but simply people demanding things right here and now and they don't take no for an answer. Let us stop pandering to this. GPs and receptionists are heroes that are maligned repeatedly in the media. This is unacceptable
a person entering the country illegally does not breach that threshold.so breaking the law is ok?
you don't need to do this to raise awareness that people are homeless. You need the government to actually do its job and look after its people rather than expecting GPs to mop up everything.
this is what is needed. in the absence of any radical change these kind of measures might just force a rethink of the contract.
'and the coroner/CPS/GMC will have, in black and white, the results and discharge summaries showing that GP is to follow up repeat CXRs in case cancer/failing kidneys etc etc.'
Which is exactly why reform is needed. if there are more cases that blame doctors for systemic health care failings there will be no health care in this country as people will simply not want to enter medicine. why should individuals be blamed for systemic health care failings?
the 'rubbish' is due to a complete lack of interest in self care which is unique to the UK unlike other countries
HMMM why is the mdo so keen to support the eportfolio? Time to stop the indemnity racket
TOO LITTLE TOO LATE. As long as the service is free at the point of the delivery it will be abused. This is the elephant in the room
unfortunately this is all talk and no action from the GPC. Don't expect any change on the frontline
Chand the problem is with the NHS. It cannot last. I don't defend Hunt but until the BMA drops this perverse support NHS at cost of doctors' health approach, nothing will improve. Doctors are leaving the UK because they don't like the NHS system. You never advocate another system yet this is what many of the silent majority want
Too little too late. this problem has been ongoing for years. some of my colleagues are estimated to have to pay over 10K because of this litigation rubbish culture. come on bma. If you want NHS (which is the problem) why can't you ensure clinicians are adequately defended?
Gabapenta could you expand on what you mean. How are those provisions crippling
i have not agreed to being sworn at as part of my job
Yes people are upset because of illness etc but we are trying to help. We are not a punchbag for people's abuse. We are not too sensitive and it is high time people start respecting their interactions with medical staff. Where is the forgiveness from patients when mistakes are made in an overworked and underfunded symptoms?
