Is there any fair way of caring for the deprived patients-it will only enhance the difficulties we face.
I am just a locum but it appears that we should try any measures/policies to improve the car of the patient.
It will only make the matter worse as regards the referral rate-I know it well. Only GP should filter the referral. Patients are likely to demand even more than what are the are doing now-I have extensive experience in the secondary care services.
We have to very careful, otherwise we will lose the personal care of the patient-we are already witnessing it due the effect of OOH services.
I feel that I may be one of the fortunate GP who was invited to a few national international conferences/seminars several years ago. Then and even now I believe in routine testing of the HV if we have tackle the whole issue of preventing this condition spreading any further. Let us be honest and serious about it but off course we have to respect clients privacy and exercise confidentiality -it is mandatory
