This news tickles. The government is trying to place a bandaid solution over a festering mess in the health sector.
Careful Dr Samir, they may bloody well take your suggestion serious haha
**GP trainee**Some things do not make sense to me. There are at least 33,000 GP docs in the UK which means that they are supposed to have one of if not the strongest logging bloc among medical specialties. Why not lobby, even quietly to push through policies that favour Doctors? The BMA clearly isn’t good enough to push through GP policies.
Can someone ELI5 please?
Hahahaha, still won’t solve the GP problem in the UK. Lots of GPs tired of the BS will simply meet the criteria required of them and move. Only this time, they will be ready to bill accordingly for their services. I advise all who wish to move to a country that allows you to have peace of mind to take up a part time business management course as well
I’m sorry, but I think ALL GPs who provide gun license certifications should provide a charge for verifying and the cost of having to provide additional information at ANY point in that individual’s life time of gun ownership. I think a standard £190 fee is fair.
A lot of heads complaining about this, but either you’re adapt or get left behind. Don’t be like the transport sector that got shaken by Uber. It is clear the direction in which the current government is heading, regarding primary care. Stop complaining.
Hello all, n00b GPhere again, so I’m wondering why GPs have to declare their income over 150k. Is this pretax or post tax? Will Locum GP doctors be affected by this new rule since technically speaking we are subcontractors to GP surgeries who are contracted to the NHS. Sorry for sounding green, I’m just worried about my future as a Locum doctor. I get tempted everyday towards moving out to Canada.
I'm new to this country, so can someone explain like I'm 5 years old. A GP surgery headed by partners decided to close a "branch" of their practice (which is a normal business decision), and that was turned down? Is this normal?
I really hope the BMA plays hard ball with them. Locum costs are projected to increase as salaried GPs will realise there is more to gain financially.
