That means Babylon has already made £32 million profit by now, come rain or shine now. Babylonians can retire now on £32 million profit with middle finger up for CCG.
Do you believe anything GMC says? I heard the opposite, they are going to look in even more detail ruining even more lives.
WHY GP only, WHY NOT HOSPITAL CONSULTANTS ??
As some one else wrote somewhere else, purpose of antibiotic is to tide over those 7 days by which self limiting viral illness would subside by its own. Short term antibiotic mean more visit by self entitled patients wasting GPs time about "something must be done" for my cold.
what is London weighting, I see same sausages everywhere in England. Does any one get more for working in London?
Dear John Elder- there is a solution, have you thought of resigning from lucrative partnership and enter into uncertain world of locum!
Good, would save lot of time from filling silly forms for £15 pound an hour
"as long as they use their 'clinical judgement'."
My clinical judgement says prescribe, prescribe, prescribe, prescribe. Patient love it and easy way to end consultation.
"the cost of covering locum indemnity out of the global sum could hit practice finances"- so LOCUMS are not covered as blanket with everyone else????
ObiOne- there would NOT be any change in locum bill as driven by market force and not by BMA (which partnership model follows). So I expect Locums to continue with same sausages as before.
Can some one tell if MDU and MDDUS go bust :), I wish their multi millionaire directors (no) good luck :)

Dear DIMWIT prospective GP, Why would you spend 5+5=10 years in medical school and GP training to earn £60-70K (BMA salary) when you can earn £50K as PA.
Headline of this news should read like this= " Major Boost for income for IT professionals" - going to get billion of pounds for useless software which is going to be outdated by the time it rolls out. Meanwhile poor GP should rot with £-££ (aka 8-30 per hour after all deductions. May General practice collapse soon.
Dear Dr Hendrik Beerstecher, Please stand up for election of RCGP or BMA and we, thousands of grass root GPs offer our full suppport. You can beat all the current useless post holders of BMA or RCGP. Sir, Please stand up for election of RCGP or BMA. I will vote first for you.
Is my hourly locum rate going to be up? I really doubt it.
Locum cap- Haha, its needed but for those MANAGERS SITTING IN CCG SIPPING COFFEE
At last some good work from BMA. Should I join BMA?
Contract has been imposed on Junior doctors, now it is time for GPs.
