I thought that ruddy faced Tory stooge had resigned.
No sense of honour shame or decency it would seem.
6000 new GPs.
That claim sounds a bit familiar?
Now be a dear Matt and f*ck right off.
Well. What would you expect from a bunch of cowardly arselickers who can't do the day job and whose sole purpose is to look after number 1.
Mirror? If you put a mirror up in front of Dr Bennyworth do you think she might see a reflection? If she thinks that actively destroying the NHS in the way the CQC is going about it, is going to help patient care then she clearly is no longer a Dr in any real sense of the word.
If your ultimate aim is to get patients high quality and safe care then take the lack of resource upstairs, CQC. But of course you won't will you?
Let the beatings continue until morale improves...
Possibly- but whichever way the Govt is largely responsible current levels of unhappiness and unrealistic expectations as well as the underfunding.
@Last Man Standing
Not surprising really. Mail is the unofficial propaganda sheet for the far right. At least since the 1930's if not before. Hurrah for the Blackshirts!!
But our workload has also gone up by 20% over the same period in order to compensate for this drop in income.
We should tug our forelocks and be grateful to our government masters.
Pharmacists granted power to change profit margins without consulting GPs.
As a general comment it makes some sense that smaller practices have a slightly higher capitation to offset the economies of scale.
I would agree with you that the formula does not redistribute enough money to the poorer areas where it is most needed.
I'm really sorry- but unless you are being ironic that is just fanciful nonsense. The magic money tree is not going to help me place the patient into the context that the consultant has seen them, or help me answer questions about what happens next with their results......and all in the space of 10 minutes with everything else on the menu?
If you throw a resource at something of course better outcomes, measured and perceived
Wonder what ths cost effectiveness would be if measured against a well resourced GP service?
If I was 'Sir Pfeffel' I would be aggrieved to have such a massive parasite on my arse.
It would certainly be interesting to know if the private company lists are as clean as anyone elses.
Thanks Jaimie. Although sadly many more will read the vindictive bile splattered over the pages of the Daily Heil.
@Holy Smoke Batman
Indeed you are right. Haven't seen the Tories wishing to cancel it in the last 9 years though. But then Thatcher did say Blair was her finest legacy.
''In a statement, Mr Rees-Mogg apologised and said he has the 'utmost respect' for medical professionals around the country".
Doesn't need much forensic examination to see that the above is a complete lie.
I might not be protected by parliamentary privilege, but what a complete and utter arsehole that Jacob Rees-Mogg fellow is.
The really sad thing is that people read the Daily Nazi Sympathiser at all.
(hurrah for the blackshirts....)
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.
