A west country GP
Put the sticker over the flaking foam strip? That’ll stop you aspirating and getting a nasty cough.
“Justifying the decision, Borish Johnson said...”
There’s two Os normally.
What are you lot on? Rushed? Three months and the economy ruined FFS!
Let joy be unbounded! Rejoice!
Indeed I looked at the short update and duly clicked on the links which suggested...nothing had changed. All clinical contacts covered by PPE but we are advising all patients to wear a face covering when attending for whatever reason as per R Vautrey’s recent notification and staff who cannot keep 2m (for the time being) apart during non clinical work.
Yep, AW8 submitted with prayers for success and end of Oct for me. We’ve seen the best of it systemically devalued and destroyed and then, with crocodile tears, NHSE say it wasn’t working anyway. Young GPs like the author do give one hope but people like me no longer wanted. Or that’s how it feels.
Stable door. Horse. Bolted.
The man panicked because he and his wife were scared about their son with special needs needing to be looked after if they were both ill. He should have apologised and the Barnard Castle eye test stretched credibility but he did not go on “a jolly.” Only the deeply prejudiced could conclude he was saying “F you” to all the little people. Surprised this party political article was given room. But then again diversity of opinion isn’t the MSM’s strong suit at the moment.
I nominate Dr Spartacus
Few shielding patients I know have actually followed the stringent guidelines in any event - one claimed she did and then told mr about her daughter from Birmingham visiting! Good luck to her I say. The fall out of anxiety, depression and acute loneliness is going to be terrible if this goes on much longer.
I agree. What do you expect?
Here’s another one you’ll be gone by Xmas.
Or rather “Can WE GPs...” as if anyone gives a monkey’s about grammar these days. Can’t imagine why we should even bother to open schools again,
There is some truth in what is written here. I for one am enjoying seeing mostly patients who really need to see me. I saw 4 F2F on Wednesday amidst dozens of phone consultations. A newly asthmatic 5 year old, a 72 year old who’d be treated for a UTI for a week but whose back pain turned out to be gallstone cholecystitis, a 75 year old who’d been to the ED on Saturday who’d missed her DVT (well her Wells score was -1 to be fair) and I must admit a worried man with a spot on his toe that was a small perforating VV but he’s happy now. I’ve worked my bollox off for years so I am NOT feeling guilty. I hate the “them and us” mentality but locums have enjoyed a sellers’ market for years. And sorry PULSE but it’s “ What can WE GPs do...” not US for goodness sake.
Nonsense on stilts.
Nonsense there is little/no evidence of children transmitting CV19 to adults and indeed the staff room would be more “dangerous “ than the classroom. Meanwhile in our wonderful modern society (we have the most expensive poverty in the world) some vulnerable kids are being ill fed and possibly abused at home. All children are missing education which will stymie some of the future life chances and consequently their health. I reckon teaching unions aren’t that bothered about education but thank goodness most teachers are.
But the man would have “started breathing” whether or not the GP had attended? Or indeed whoever had “verified” “death”. So what does this dinner party anecdote add to the debate? Always good to hear from DR CHILLY MUNRO too.
Dear Dr Munro, you’ve told us that in block capitals before. The question is why you keep on about a once in a career, rare as hens teeth, who’d have thought it anomaly? We are talking expected deaths here.
No common sense any more Curious. Nowadays we must have govt guidance on any and every aspect of daily existence covering each eventuality, no matter how unlikely, in explicit detail. Remember - “You can’t be too careful!” And in every case we must make sure that whatever happened never happens again.
