Took Early Retirement
Having worked in the salt mines for nearly 34 years, I have grown tired of mendacious politicians of all parties constantly trying to make my life impossible, using the aid of their all-too-willing running dogs and lackeys in the press.
Currently keeping my head down and waiting to be called back to the colours, but only when I am offered massive sums of money and free indemnity. I may be gone a while!
I'm with Comrade Red Flag. ANd.....
"I know a lot of surgeries don’t like taking repeat prescription requests over the phone, so you’re looking at having to physically call into the surgery or getting a pharmacist to order for people."
I've been able to order online for years! And before that all I had to do was tick boxes on a repeat slip and drop it in the surgery when passing, or putting it in an envelope with a stamp on it.
Werner von Braun, this is not rocket science.
QUite. The usualy "top GPs". Pulse, this is an excrementally bad annual event.
Looks folks, you all misunderstand this. It's privatised so it MUST be good. This is TOry dogma. Ignore the fact that it isn't. It MUST be good. Repeat after me.....
GP Survival is a nonentity-organisation who like to ban people who say things that are controversial- even on their FB page. They will be confined to the dustbin of medical history.
More lying from the tories. Lower than vermin.
Access to art will in effect mean that it gives people more chance to nick it. Yes, great idea. Access to a GP might be better by paying them more so people will want the job.
In one way,as people have coped without it, it shows how much of my life was wasted running round after people's whims, who didn't really need me anyway.
Suck it up public: you reap what you sow.
RLE. It's the only answer. Another big win for the BMA.
I left early too. So glad I did.
The juniors only have themselves to blame- and the BMA of course.
Like the above: this surely cannot survive a legal challenge. If your "union" doesn't get on with a challenge, someone could try crowdfunding it like Dr Hadiza. But if that is needed, then leave the BMA.
One of the reasons we were told this could no longer work in our area was that there were no generic physios anymore. They had all sub-specialised. Someone was clearly lying to us.
Sorry for the doctors concerned, but good news if it leads to a complete melt-down in GUS, which is what is needed.
"appointment of an education supervisor" Let's hope he/she will be around rather than buggering off to do a lecture at another hospital on Dr B-G's first day at work.
I, for one, fell just as sorry for Dr B-G as I do for the Adcock Family; weren't they photographed drinking Champagne after the striking off verdict?
I had assumed the GMC must assume she is impaired on the grounds that she is not white, male, etc....(nor part of the Old Boy Network)
"Low morale" is music to the government's ears. Low morale does nothing except make people more compliant to the beatings. It's only when people act, i.e. Leave, that they take notice. Whingeing achieves nothing.
Well said, Una.
Of course, very rapidly "unprofessionalism" will be applied to "Not doing as you are told by management intellectual pygmies".
"This is irrelevant. It is private, so it is GOOD". HMG.
Do what I did; leave early and thus cut your services by 100%. Easy.
