Because anyone and everyone could have Covid19 is why we stopped seeing patients several weeks ago.
It's not clear; is her job pointless, or is it her? Or both?
Statistics suggest that if under 50 years old and generally well you are more likely to come to harm commuting then from Covid 19, but the mortality rate rises sharply over 60 years of age.
Which makes the idea of using returning retired GPs anywhere near patients a very bad idea.
As long as the RCGP exist things can only get worse.
EMIS have been dragging their feet for years. CCG totally useless of course.
AccuRx is good and easy to install and use yourself.
CCG are useless.
EMIS practice. Not happening this week. Or any time soon.
Stuff EMIS, try AccuRx.
Free and patients don't get your phone number.
Any chance of the BMA doing something useful? Such as spending some of their £millions on sourcing PPE? Or is grandstanding all we can expect?
How much are they offering?
And what have those spineless jellies in the BMA got to say about this?
If you really want a view of the throat, not that it ever tells you anything useful but parents expect it, ask parent to take a photo with their phone.
It's an opt out system, numbers refer to those not opted out, we will see how many of those actually volunteer.
If going thinking of volunteering I would definitely want an antibody test to establish whether I was immune, as Immunity would make working much safer.
The GMC giving a temporary Licence to Practice does not reinstate anyone to the Performers list, hence still not eligible to work in GP; wtf is the point of the Performers List? More pointless bureaucracy that needs scrapping.
There must be large numbers of doctors involved in the regulatory bureaucracy, PCNs, RCGP and the like who now have a lot of free time on their hands and know how to do the job so much better. Just saying.
As above, GPs have no role in the assessment of potentially lethal Covid 19 cases, particularly in the absence of adequate protection. Over to you, BMA.
Absence of insight.
Suspect most people reading this will be horrified at the financial ineptitude, and the crass insensitivity of planning to sack their office staff at this precise time.
They could probably keep the staff if they moved out of the Euston Palace into somewhere a bit cheaper, Blenheim or Chatsworth perhaps.
No protection, no face to face consults, none.
I'm curious how she got a test when front line GPs cannot, despite proven contact, cough, fever and repeat requests for a test?
Also, when will she deploying to the front line, now that she has invaluable experience and immunity?
Partner apparently eligible but no email by Saturday evening; safe to assume escaped?
ps. Average age ventilated patients in Italy was 64 years.
