I thought it was just BMA Northern Ireland that made threats
ارقد في سلام
GP Wales I note no name
We either do the shifts or are obliged to pay locums to gdo them
We wanted to see the pts in our own surgeries but were told we wouldn’t know how to clean the rooms etc and were threatened with “sanctions”
Btw we have much better ppe in our surgeries that we have bought and obtained ourselves
Well as an NI GP what Alan stout has said is wrong
Most GPs are not happy with these centres but are too afraid to speak out and rightly so as we are being threatened with contractual change if we don’t cooperate
We can’t enlist the help of the BMA and the BMA rep was one of the four people who came up with the covid centre design
Letters and contact to head BMA office have been unsuccessful in getting any meaningful response
VERY VERY BAD IDEA
In Ni now compulsory for all practices to man these
Also we have to man them in and ooh
So not gms
We have been told if we do not obey there “ will be sanctions”
Can’t you see that by rotating every GP through these central hubs you are exposing the pts and the hcw to high viral loads and could be incubation centres !
Also imo a way to now bring GPs in line. Get rid of our autonomy and aim towards the 24/7 salaried service
The thin end of the wedge
Cobblers where have the BMA been?
In Northern Ireland setting up covid centres that GPs compelled to man
I didn’t know our union designed services
If someone can explain to me
Make your own decisions in the practice. Do not rely on the so called experts who probably haven’t seen a patient since the year dot!
Exactly. Most businesses having paying customers!
Am in Canada on holidays. My doctor friends here are laughing at the idea of this and also the amount!
We really are a bunch of chumps. GPs in the U.K. that is!
Met an Australian man yesterday on the ski lift (life not all bad). His sister is a GP in Sydney and has to see 4 patients an hour and does not have enough time to do everything for them!!
I pay fees and my own Bupa which I have as the nhs is going down the tubes in NI
And then if it gets built and the GPs move in will they have to pay huge building “management” fees?
What percentage DNA these millions of appointments?
“ pop out!”
Oh dear God
Big bucks Benneyworth.
Dumping has increased exponentially
For years they were asked to increase the places and refused. Now guess what no one wants to do the job as it is so awful
You reap what you sow
I am surprised there are any GPs left in England with these constant attacks
Will they never stop?
Or is this part of the cunning plan
I thought they were far too busy wrecking the country with Brexit
WHAT AN ARSE!
Will this comment be removed or will pulse agree
Good luck with that one
BMA had no joy when the female docs who qualified before 1984 tried to get widowers’ pensions for their spouses.
We weren’t equal to men then but suddenly were declared equal with the state pension
