Clare Gerada pleads an important case with merit and value!
CQC should heed the “unintended” consequences of this bureaucratic challenge at this difficult time!
Resignation levels could easily increase for no real benefit!
Extremely scary environment! Recruitment into General Practice will suffer - many “potential” Medical Students will decide to follow alternative careers! Another Government “own goal”!
Individuals are personally responsible for their own health and adults are responsible for their dependents.
NHS England and HMG created the GP contract and are responsible for it’s success/failure.
Attempting to dump this recruitment/retention challenge on GP practice is cowardly/weak!
Not impressed by this attempt at devolving responsibility!
This “ Canary” is a serious warning to the CCG!
Further cases will occur as staff mismatch grows.
British Medical Degree IS International!
Qualify and then Emigrate!!
I agree with Andrew Bamji!
This was predictable and demonstrates a toxic unstable danger,
Carr-Hill formula needs urgent review and GP Funding must change to reflect this new reality.
Excellent Editorial! No one unscathed! GMC and BMA both seen as Failing a Junior Doctor in a dangerous ill-supported workplace which is more common than acknowledged!
Hospital medicine needs urgent reform!
Primary Care is underfunded and under-resourced too.
NHSE are promoting a "model"of community care they think will be affordable,Accept a basic,emergancy care NHS for "the many"and an enlarging Private Service for "the few"! Not an advance!!
A damming litany of NHSE failures.
Sadly there is little frontline GPs can do to change that systemic cultural failure.
Workforce crisis will not be reversed currently.
NHSE has many fences to mend with Gps.
RCGP should loudly describe the funding instability that Matt Hancock is encouraging!
Patient concern is the only useful option that ?may concern Smug Politicians!
This "commitment" should be mothballed until Good Evidence demonstrates that it is excellent "value for money" and actively assists recruitment and retention of GP's!
fULLY CONCUR with Dr.Chand!
Place article in Daily Mail to Explain WHY General Practice is under Direct Threat by this "solution" to access and continuity of care.
No Vaccination-No State Support/Education
Herd Immunity matters!
Poor Parenting in this case Can Be Managed!
Politicians should "Man Up"!
A story of the "Times"!
Good Luck in Australia-It is a different Healthcare system.
This is a challenge that needs addressing or others will follow.
My patient remains in Broadmoor.
A Regional Health Authority Investigation and Report with 22 Recommendations was produced and remains "on file" somewhere!
Evidence is required that "Super Practice" model or Partnership "at scale" is superior to usual model! Until proven advantages can be demonstrated this is just an experiment or pilot of a theory.Patient safety and satisfaction need to be Independantly Validated-Not by CQC inspection which may have a hidden agenda!
Clare Gerada is correct to highlight issues and pressures. ReValidation is unhelpful and resources are inadequate and demands escalating.Workforce limitations will force model of care to change.Government must accept resposibility for current demands.As GP turnover and workforce diminishes their will be political accountability.
Early discussion of Advance Directives in Terminal Care are wise and useful. Futile CPR is distructive and upsetting for Relatives and Staff.BLS and ATLS/ALS Training for All Clinical Personell is desireable and certainly Life-Safeing in my case when I was stabbed in my surgery in Feb 2000 and needed resuscitation for a Left Massive Heamothorax.
GMC should reflect on this entire episode.
NHS is under-resourced and under-doctored-Systemic failings will continue-GMC role must adapt and improve.
I look forward to reading Dr Kanani's articles and contribution. Her predecessor caused significant harm and eroded trust! She has an uphill task to repair damage caused and restore trust.? a Poisoned Chalice!?
