This happens all over the country. A developer is obliged to build the infrastructure with a proposed housing development *over a certain size*. The last bit is very important. A developer will go on their merry way building houses and suddenly stop short of this threshold housing number, then feck off and do the same again elsewhere. Thus, lots of sizeable housing estates pop up all over the place...lots of houses and nothing else.
Is Pulse an online magazine sponsored by the Socialist Party? The trend of left-wing partisan 'journalism' isn't well camouflaged.
Medical schools are too elitist...if we're going down the equal outcome route then surely there's no bother transitioning directly from A-level to FY1. In fact, who needs A-levels...
An anecdotal story about what you perceive as posh isn't going to persuade anyone to adopt a truly socialist model. Being posh doesn't predict a lack of understanding or humility.
Buckets of lorazepam and risperidone, surely?!
Thank you for your Labour Party Political Broadcast.
Sounds like another case of stuff killing people, GP to fix.
Transferring from one quango to another
I'll accept a moan if it is followed by a solution.
What! We know! These drugs were initially developed for anxiety! R&D wasn't focused on the range of 'clinical indications' now! Even then, one could argue any beneficial effects simply reduce the atonomic perception of threat/anxiety rather than the emotional frontal lobe anxiety.
Keep your hair on everybody!
OTC statins, like all other OTC medications, will be set at a price that still encourages people to get a prescription!
How long will it be until CCGs put statins on the list of things patients shouldn't bothering their GPs for!?!
The piece comes across as a bit random and vague. We are already tormented by far too many protocols, tick boxes and templates that divert our gaze away from the person sat in front of us. Maybe AI of the future will be able to pick up the nuances and develop the intuition a human GP does well. In the meantime the protocol-driven health care by our 'associated' colleagues is already here and is not very good (artificial unintelligence).
It would also be prudent for every contributor to declare interests. More than just a GP and medical writer...
FFS there are enough fat doctors and nurses to answer the question for us!
'Only one in five doctors could give a monkeys about online patient feedback, reveals study'
Fixed the headline for you.
Many GPs have left the RCGP for various reasons. No-one is compelled to be a member. If you choose to leave then do so without making it a threat. If you disagree when an opinion don't try to shout it down or use censorship. Instead, go to the debate and have intelligent dialogue. I would welcome a platform for anyone that does not share my beliefs, even those I find offensive...sometimes truths can be uncomfortable.
There was expecting a critique of the appropriate use of antibiotics in COPD. Instead it's a flow chart from the manual for trainee first aiders!
