The headline is misleading, as this is not new research but previous research repackaged.
Also, research that tells you that grass is blue and the sky green needs more careful examination than the commentators quoted or the Pulse journalist have apparently carried out.
Fantasy money, fantasy economics.
Politicians are likely more concerned with the opinions of the Cat Protection League and the Royal Horticultural Society than with those of the BMA.
Did someone hear a noise? A squeaky whiney sort of sound. Perhaps I imagined it.
Well done Springburn. Every Practice should have the same poster.
Too busy saving the World to notice GP is dying.
Or is this another attempt to distract from the BMA's non-response to the Romney Report?
Repeated flip flops from Nice and often pitifully inadequate evidence used to justify guidance. Familiarity breeds contempt.......
Asked about evidence of improving safety and evaded the question.
No insight into the damage done to practice morale and clinical effectiveness of weeks spent making sure all the toilet rolls are laminated and that the cleaner knows the nuclear waste spill protocol.
Arrogant, ignorant and self-serving.
Twenty five years in a top-ten deprivation area postcode.
1. Doctors are too busy dealing with their patient's multiple physical, emotional, legal and social pathologies to deal with yet another problem.
2. Patients have less effective coping skills and limited strategies other than drugs, alcohol, more drugs.
3. A few quid from selling the sleepers down the pub is a lot of money for people living on benefits.
4. Doctors get reluctant to say no after two or three nocturnal episodes of brick through the window.
No doubt the BMA will still manage to negotiate a pay cut.
Closing the Practice will improve care for patients? How does that work?
College academic struggles with basic practical GP skills. In other news, Pope admits to being a Catholic, rain expected somewhere in the World, bear defecates in wood etc etc etc.
Presumably those criticising have never failed to refer a patient who was later found to have a serious illness? Or made a routine referral for someone who later was found to have cancer? The claim that suicide can always be prevented is as reasonable as expecting all cancers to be detected before they are incurable.
When are the BMA going to realise that the NHS is the problem?
As usual the BMA will be negotiating GPs to pay for the privilige of propping up the NHS at their own money expense.
Linking eligibility for Child Benefit payments to attendance for vaccination would largely solve this problem.
Endlessly driving down the price of drugs results in reluctance to manufacture and distribute drugs. Surprised? Really?
Why do people pay money to this useless shower? Once you pass the exams it is optional.
Underfunded? Or poorly managed and overburdened with unhappiness masquerading as illness and unrealistic expectations?
Putt's Corollary: "Every technical hierarchy, in time, develops a competence inversion." with incompetence being "flushed out of the lower levels" of a technocratic hierarchy, ensuring that technically competent people remain directly in charge of the actual technology while those without technical competence move into management.
