Surely this is wholly unacceptable even to the BMA?
I wouldn’t trust 111 to properly triage the sun rising in the morning.
Perhaps not the best time for industrial action, but a blanket refusal across the country would be appropriate. What are they going to do? Sack us?
Is there any facility for recovering clinicians to be tested before they are allowed back to work?
Debate over abortion will no doubt continue ad infinitum; individual politicians bring their own views, but parliament as a whole gets to vote on law; the current laws do seem to represent a sensible balance. It does seem to me however that you are rather more concerned with expressing a political and ideological point than contributing to said debate.

All from the goodness of their hearts, no doubt. Bless.
I feel sure that Jezza really really has the interests of the GP workforce at heart.....

Even with the usual financial carrots, I could not in conscience recommend to low risk individuals that they adopt the requisite burden of medication, even if I had the time to have the conversation.

I can’t even begin to comprehend the thought process behind this beauty.
Possibly he means a much needed boost to paperwork?; to colleagues packing it in?; to appraisers finally drowning under bureaucracy?
Read em and weep suckers.
More central control, less choice all round, and less money for doing the same job.
Be careful what you wish for......
