The Saintly Nicola saved us from abusing ourselves with drink and cigs, she can easily deliver further salvations.
Lovely to see you back GMC. Missed you terribly. It’s good that you kept yourself safe.
More great reporting. Deserves an award.
Triaging is notoriously difficult (we should know as it has existed for two hundred years) but HMG (and it’s 111 service) insists on using ‘school leavers on computers’ for performing this complex task. The model is seriously flawed and not only increases workload because of risk averseness but also demoralises the caregiving staff.
‘BMA - 'nothing short of a national scandal'.
(Oops, missed a bit? - Is it ‘keeping powder dry’).
‘The BMA has charted its plans for general practice to be carbon neutral within 10 years’ time.’
Well it’s probably heading that way anyway!

@Decorum Est :
you should consider changing your baker!
I like other cakes too, but a well-made VS is yummy!
Totally agree anon3, VS can be yummy. However my baker makes much better ‘other’ cakes and moreover has acquired a permanent position.

Does anybody understand this comment?
?Maybe he means:
‘CQC defines typical Tory services’
There are much nicer cakes than Victoria Sponge

‘educationalists and other consultation junkies’
Are they the guys who write books about NLP etc and make loads of dosh talking shxt (particularly about how to pass the CSA) but don’t demean themselves to actually do f2f?

You’re a very naughty boy!
Top marks for formulaic advice from a specialist registrar in psychiatry to GPs?
‘The standard of proof 'threshold' for proving a case (at MPTS) is therefore now lower than it once was, making it easier for the GMC to prove its case against a doctor. The GMC needs only to prove the case on the balance of probabilities (“which explanation is more probable”) to a threshold of 51% or more.’
So despite the fact that the GMC can impose a criminal level sanction on an individual who fails to deliver the expected solution to a complex problem, they only have to provide a civil level of proof?
Some might consider the simple extrapolation of this fact might suggest that practising medicine is not only fraught with danger but also viewed by current society in the UK, as akin to criminal activity?
The GMC should be returned to its role of ‘keeper of the register’!
Learn and demonstrate faux empathy and pay £1.352 and ‘Bob’s your uncle’ (a career as a GP for life - never mind that you’ll have any enthusiasm crushed out of you by the NHS, NHSE, PHE, NICE, GMC, BMA and many other agencies including the beloved RCGP). God I can’t wait...
That’s a particularly insightful and gentle commentary Shaba.
Complaining costs diddly. Responding to a complaint, well that’s another matter...
‘Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.’
‘fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me’
Fool me repeatedly ...?
Could NHS England's medical director for primary care draw up a plan to rationalise primary care I.e. dumb all the useless, wasteful and demoralising stuff (not hard to figure which stuff)?
The Machiavellian Management Monsters are just biding their time.
They will return as soon as they feel safe from the plague and take their ‘righteous vengeance’. Ha!
