GPs go forth


  • GPs required to take pictures of lesions before skin cancer referrals

    I'm curious about the Information Governance about this. Are they asking GP's to use their personal mobile phones to take clinical photos and then ?email them to the hospital.

    There are a number of software options available that can make this better but the article doesn't say what's being used.

  • GPs who took up MDU 'half-price' indemnity offer will not need run-off cover

    Feeling a bit stung by this.

    As an MDU member for several years who did not like the new occurrence based ‘transitional benefits’ I asked MDU to remain on existing scheme to be told that was not an option.

    MPS were so swamped with new applications that despite starting 3 months before my renewal they were not able to offer me a policy in time so I had to renew with MDU or cancel booked work.

    Now I have to stay with MDU until I retire in 20+ years? Feels like a trap?

    Shame MPS couldn’t sort out their membership- they would have had a new customer...
