Why exempt primary care, why are we still the free health service to the world. About time all visitors to the uk paid to access all components of the NHS.
We will need to ensure that we all learn to say no, if the money is cut, the service is cut. Simple
Only a Corbynista approach will work - forced labour camps for GPs and no retirement allowed.
TW, yes indeed, sound like a major change in working practice required as that should be more than sustainable.
I vote is not required we should all just refuse to join PCNs, but as usual we all act like lemmings
Bit like Secondary care getting away with Locum "consultants" that aren't even on the specialist register.
I wonder if women / men was replaced with full time / part time. Observation would suggest a part time worker is more likely to work more than their scheduled hours - does your data show that?
And I would certainly charge for the service if asked as it would be none NHS work
Let’s hope the practices learn to say NO
Networks - an enhance service no contractual requirement to sign up. A chance for practices to vote with their feet and refuse to sign up to networks.
So voluntary DES, so what happens if no practices in a locality want to set one up?
0.25 WTE per 50000 patients for the clinical director. That’s 295 WTE taken out of circulation across England. That’s really going to help the GP crisis.
Idiots, all the work done to make sure patients end up with prompt care / advice / action in the right setting ruined. They will be booking directly with the GP to be redirected to reception, secretaries, physio, PALS and yet another GP appointment wasted. At least it will be an easy, but pointless, appointment. No joined up thinking in the drive to satisfy IT mania.
Have we had notification that the current extended hours contract has been extended past its 31 March contract end date ?
Can they amend the legislation and remove all OTC meds as well.
NOoooooo, we have a balance of paramedics, minor illness nurses, practice nurses and HCAs with the most appropriate HCPs seeing the patients. Combine that with efficient working, post management / workflow, prescription reconciliation clerks and more then you can easily run with a list size double that. Wrong knee jerk reaction. Sort out the inefficiencies in the system first.
excellent idea, been asking for it for years
4 week waiting time - easy to meet. The referral criteria will be so restrictive and most, whoops sorry they already do that, almost all referrals will be rejected.
Locum = employee. Agree hours, number of contacts that meh be safely managed, then walk away. Not your problem.
Hmm refer urgently, well I do that but the patient will not get seen for 3-6 months
