The only reason you all don't like what she's saying is because the "time wasters" give you a nice break between the complex legitimate patients.
Patients should be blamed for their social inadequacy.
Correct patients aren't to be blamed for underfunding, but funding has nothing to do with wasting a doctor's time.
The only way a system like the NHS can survive is either strict discipline of care provision, population control or forming a true communist society.
I'm sorry but how can a health care system cause harm? I'm sorry your cancer was diagnosed late but unfortunately you're not the only person demanding cancer care. I'm sorry your wait for an inpatient bed meant spending time in a corridor but you're not the only person putting pressure on bed managers. I'm sorry your GP appointment is not for months but a growing population is outweighing ability to provide care.
The fact is HMG can only do so much to improve the NHS. It cannot conscript people into nursing or doctoring. It cannot magic money out of thin air to build more hospitals.
The only entitlement to care we all have is the fact that we pay taxes for it. If it weren't for that simple fact you aren't entitled to diddly squat.
(Please keep in mind your taxes go towards other struggling sectors such as the police force)
I'm assuming the lying patient will now be sued for damages.
To everyone asking if Dr Musgrave is in the correct profeddion.
You do realise almost every junior doctor I've met regrets their career choice.
I highly agree with Decorum.
I'd feel much safer psychologically in a court of justice.
If the banking sector financially destroys a country, causing mental health issues they not only keep their jobs but get bailed out and bonuses.
If a doctor messes up, their life is destroyed whilst the victims receive compensation which further cripples an already financially unstable health care system.
Do doctors who get wrongfully suspended or erased get compensated?
Yes there is a staffing crisis at all levels amongst multiple specialties but HMG can only make a career choice attractive to a certain limit.
Once that limit is reached it can't conscript people into the jobs and the general public will have to be told like the children they are; what they can and cannot demand compensation, if any at all, for!
I'll tell you why because this government refuses to lay down its fist for what the tax payer should and should not expect from the NHS.
Until the public is disciplined nothing will change for the NHS. The alternative to discipline is population control.
Why are doctors and nurses expected to cope and work with uncertainty but the general public aren't and are even given money when their expectations of the uncertain don't materialize as expected??!!
Unless society is willing to help itself feel safe by creating a culture of benevolence then it does not deserve the same benevolent care of professionals.
Unless society is willing to prioritize health care it does not deserve anything Mr Ombudsman.
It is not the responsibility of the NHS to solve it's workforce crisis.
That my dear ombudsman is the responsibility of the society which is demanding to be cared for. You want a crisis team nurse or CAMHS practioner? Then raise your family to go into that profession and supplement this with informed voting.
Oh wait Mrs Smith wants her son to go into banking whilst someone else outside of her family can sacrifice their life for the sake of others.
Mrs James decides to raise a child with an alcoholic.
Boundaries need to be drawn between what is the responsibility of society and what is the responsibility of doctors.
Sorry, but if HMG actually cared about us it would give people like Dr Musgrave a suitable position in it's cabinet.
Even with a diagnosis of dementia your patient is still going to be in crisis.
No drug or talking therapy will dissolve crisis secondary to dementia accept permanent transfer to a nursing home.
So quite whining about not being seen by the dementia team. You do not need a formal diagnosis of dementia to be accepted into a nursing home.
If my family doctor earnt £500K I don't know how that would affect my trust of them. Quite frankly knowledge of someone's high income would not affect my trust of them.
Knowledge of their criminal record and medical training records would though.
Can NHS England please explain what salary and trust have to do with each other please.
HAHAHA! My foundation trust was on constant black alert. It made no difference just sounded cool.
£20K over 5 years spread between atleast 3 people is a joke.
