well articulated... hope it's listened to though!!
No consultation with us?? Funny that! So while my neighbours clap and I am supposed to be proud of my profession, I am yet again disappointed that the BMA Allow us to be steam rollered into something we all feel needs ‘working up’ ( which is different to rejecting)!
Have reminded myself why am not a member of the BMA!
slippery, slippery slope... which we are all sliding down WITHOUT PROPER PPE!!!!
Why? No legitimate reason here at all!! All part of the gran plan to demonise GP’s, force partners out, take over practices and try and salary us all... resulting in longer hours, more stupid bureaucracy, less pay and a retirement age of over 70!
And lots of other professionals earn well over £150k but it says more about the kind of people we are that we worry what patients think about us and our services if they found out what we earn...... another example of GPs good will!
As you can tell.... mine has run out!!!
I presume our esteemed primary care minister has based that statement on the many hours she has spent at the cold face of primary care over the past 6 months, shadowing and talking to GPs, practice managers, leaders in social care and other MDT members...... Not!
so my questions are
1, who is going to train and support these people when they move into primary care? Like many other experienced GPs and educationalists, I left mainstream primary care last year, exhausted and fed up... with no intention of returning! They can’t train and develop themselves!
2, when they finally get into primary care..... why won’t they get burnout , fed up and resentful like the rest of us and then leave too?
The issue here is not ‘recruiting’ as I see it but ‘retaining’...... but they don’t seem to grasp this!
