CAMHS needing referral from school nurse, when said institution may be half the problem.
The total lack of the "clever doctors" who would take on a complex problem and find the answer, not a "service" that only looks at one thing.
Agree re cover for private work which is at risk of becoming hideously expensive. Interesting to see if OOH providers can get look in on this scheme - I work for one who contractually have to provide indemnity cover, they do this by refunding my subs.
Gosh I hope we aren't giving Mr H any ideas, but maybe it will be only given to permanent employees of huge practices who promise to do lots of out of hours etc etc
Locums will have to be covered otherwise there will be no locums to cover the partners' holidays.
Not sure what is meant by a "paying a membership fee to have their fees covered". Sounds like joining the NHS litigation authority with reduces rates for stat and mand training and safety records etc .
so GP(s) staffing the urgent treatment centres (and how many will there need be to cover 84 hours a week?)
Sounds a bit like having OOH 24/7 - then maybe if you have that setup you don't really need daytime GPs at all. Surely not.
working in a very rural patch with a dispensary - local shop not up to much and the nearest supermarket is 9 miles. I agree that we should encourage people to buy their own OTC meds but as it stands we are not allowed to sell them! Woulsd be happy to if we could
How about £250 for each GP struggling with Capita over pensions?
what is most stressful is when colleagues in a practice vary in their views. I got mostly C's and a couple of B's. Some colleagues would get solid D's and you can feel the disapproval if you don't do the same ....
We would have to ban the phrase "you can't be too careful these days"
agree with turn out the lights - our MPIG loss was huge .. sounds like this may help to replace it, but no doubt there will be plenty of strings attached
