Sounds like Sunderland has a sensible and truly supportive CCG of practices and primary care. Good work... BMA has been useless
Maybe we can invent a mandatory training course for creating mandatory training courses?
Extremely interesting that Sunderland is the only CCG in the NorthEast to have spent the full £3.00 on supporting General Practice and improving patient access.
Nothing controversial, the case for de-prescribing is well made. Its in NICE guidance, frailty guidance and the massive multimorbidity evidence base. Cost effective prescribing or cost effecting medicine in general is part and parcel of GP training. The LMCs are a bunch of useless backward obstructive GPs who are behaving like an out of touch trade union. The work will be done for good medical reasons, if it achieves increased funding for practices then that's great. If it doesn't there isn't any penalties... Not sure what's the issue here. Pulse you're not being objective
Its people like you who put all new graduates off general practice. You can't see solutions or opportunities if it hits you in the face. Youre negative, cynical and extremely antagonistic. You probably choose into the wrong career hence the miserablity !! It might actually surprise you that there is lot of doctors who enjoy medicine, enjoy looking after their patients from cradle to grave, welcome the satisfying yet challenging environment and that being a doctor and a GP isn't a 9-5 job but a vocation.
