Thats why we need to rip it down and start again.
Massey is a government appointed weasel with a very shabby past history (junior Dr strikes).
At least if we appointed our own GMC democartically then we would only have ourselves to blame.
I don't trust him, and I suspect nor do many others, and I don't see why he should not enjoy the same fear that we do when we make 'mistakes'.
Apologies so far are just words. I have yet to see any genuine action, and it has been going on long enough.
Reason I have not walked away:
I fear for our childrens futures.
The concept of the NHS is worth fighting for, even if the current actuality created by this bastard government is not.
@Holy Smoke Batman
Absolutely agree. The principle is fine but unless it is funded properly, is not forced to rush things through, not subject to the external biases of big pharma, patient action groups and charities, and unless it represents broad medical views (that should involve GPs particularly- but not the Steve Field gong chasing types of course) then it will not work.
In the meantime it is what it is. The National Institute of Clinical Excrement.
When something goes wrong (and it will) then the patient can sue the CCG for their unecessary delaying tactics.
I agree with you up to a point but this is more than a mistake.
When others suffer as a result of incompetence, and when no corrective action or responssibility is taken then unfortunately heads on stakes is what remains. A fish rots from the head down.
An alternative of course would be to avoid apportioning individual blame would be to remove the whole bloody lot and start again.
You are suggesting that corruption applies to institutes of state only and not to private enterprise?
@Holy Smoke Batman.
Don't worry- its already happening. Thats why the Govt have started shiting themselves.
@ Graeme Wilkes.
Now that Capita have admitted the error have they offered compensation to GP practices to atone for it?
The BMA DOES represent a lot of the medical profession. Of course there are other organisations and some choose not to be represented which is their choice.
Are you suggesting we all roll over and do nothing?
Nadine Dorries would be a poor choice for a position of responsibility anywhere.
Despite that the fact that she still isn't the least talented on the Tory front benches is startling (with dunderheads like Raab, Patel, McVey and that idiot Hancock to provide only slight contrast).
Still, I suppose at least Rees Mogg's nanny is on hand to provide help with their regular nappy changes.
Good luck with the treatment David. I would avoid the papers for a bit if I was you!
I think somebody ought to now strike off the legal advisors to protect the reputation of the legal profession.
Not going to happen though is it.
And whats that bad smell Massey doing still hanging around?
Mr Handjob will be delighted.
Looks like Theresa may missed her antibiotic opportunity.
I would argue expert advice from an NHS expert who can take responsibilty for the not inconsiderable cost decision , following evidence based guidelines.
Awaiting good evidence base.....
@Turn out the lights
Little bounce. Perhaps a dead cat one to even get second place!
I can't think of a less competent bunch of chancers, egotists and liars ever to have been 'in charge'.
Private good, public baad etc.....
How about some blind randomised controlled trials for starters?
Firstly- well done. Ironically, and despite all their efforts, the patient will not be able to share in this accolade due to confidentiality.
Passes the cockroach test, and substantially longer than your average psychiatry out patient letter.
Assuming you went to the last paragraph and just read that?
@ Paul Candy
Well skewered Paul. I note that the gullible over at RCGP central may have fallen for it though.
Now what were they telling us only 5 minutes ago about the over prescription of antibiotics by GPs?
Levothyroxine 50 mcg per day = £30 per year
levothyroxine 100 mcg per day = 30 per year
Liothyronine 20mcg daily= £3,000 per year
My T shirt might seem to look better with the word Nike on it, but all it might have achieved is just ripping me off and making someone else rich.
Proper evidence is needed, as is lacking at the moment.
Also have heard of private medical opinions being used - these endocrinologists should know better.
'rhetoric and reality'
This Tory circus clown knows exactly what he is doing and has absolutely no intention of bridging the gap. Just as long as he can fool enough people into believing him that is all he needs.
