Um, are you sure? That means our practice has made £8m profit (10k patients) and I don't think that's quite true, or ever likely to be.
It won't be every GP who gets trained to use a dermatoscope. So that's an appt to see me, me to refer to my partner with the training, who's on holiday for a fortnight...
We have an obligation to refer ALL suspected cancers within 24 hours.This is dangerous.
PS the only thing more appalling than my knowledge of dermatology are my photography skills. Our local consultant has asked we do NOT send her photos!
sorry, I'm confused. Am I covered or not?
the way I read it, it's 1.4% + 1.6%/yr for a DES + several K/yr for indemnity. I'm sure it won't be as simple as that, but hardly pathetic
If anyone thinks that the treasury is going to listen, for a second, to that pension request...
does this include each and every flu jab?
you know you're still not allowed to send clinical information unless it's a secure fax at the other end?
Is it just me then? I can't wait to not have to translate what scribble the fax has further mangled, especially when it's been waiting to be seen for 24 hours because the paper jammed. About bloody time
could and will be 2 totally different things
It’s looking at year 1. It’s bound to be poor. See what it’s like in year 2, or ask an area in year 2 already?
we are going to have a LES at (I think) £250/bed/year. There is a lot of extra work but, essentially we are going to do a ward round weekly (as well as doing the usual for sick patients). One of the results will be 1 practice gets to cover a RH/NH (or a half). The practice then will encourage other homes to re register their patients in to the covering practice. Long term patients dropped vs long term ongoing care.
What a nice man
you couldn't make this stuff up, could you
huh? We've been using this for months (3 different ones, I'm told). And if you think it makes a blind bit of difference for urgent opinions, well....
"Some of this behaviour is down to arrogance, some laziness and some (although less than claimed) is due to budgetary constraints."
And some is due to patient choice, with consultants unable to do this, at least that what our lot tell us (and explain to our patients!)
good for her. Nice to have good news for a change
so we get 40% back on £10-12K (and climbing) defence fees, not 100% That's what the fuss is about. And locums are on NHSE hit list so don't expect any help there
"The figures, released by NHS Digital, show that there has been a 300 increase in FTE GP numbers in the first three months of 2017, while the total number of GPs in England increased by 725 between December and March"
And that will be the section HMG concentrates on reporting
Restricting newly qualified GP's to little/no locum work is depriving them of some valuable experience. All will be used to nice training practices, and it can be a major eye opener. It'll also reduce the locum pool, not a good idea
