Since when are CQC giving a flying fart about GPs or their mental health or anything else ?
They are a law to themselves, not reporting to anybody, just causing havoc
Exactly my thinking over last few years, add partners who seem driven by ticking all the boxes without fail and without any questions asked.
Now Covid19 comes along, all changed and even more soul searching done, confirming that it’s time to go...
Sorry guys, retiring earlier than originally planned at the end of the month. Good luck with it all.
Surely, if a GP has been identified as having been in contact with Covid19 and this GP has had contact with colleagues at his / her surgery , these colleagues will also turn into contacts, stay at home and they will have to shut shop. Result ! Finished !
Somebody could give our patients HanCOCK’s mobile number for telephone consultations and feedback.
Too little staff, too little PPE,no appointments, no dedicated room ( will we need a hot zone? will this be 'drive thu' in our already poxy car park)lots of staff working from home... whatever next...not to mention the inevitable test result chasing by patients following tests, not to mention problems interpreting test results with 1 in 3 being false negative.
Usual Primary Care dumping !
Maybe HanCOCK should take a 60 mile drive and test his eyesight... clearly, he doesn’t know, where he is going ....
Remember , this originates from the same bunch of incompetent numpties causing the delay in lockdown , lack of tests and PPE , care home fiasco, high risk list cock-up , flip-flopping test and trace ( recommencing it 2 months after stopping it ) etc etc
They treat us , GPs , as well as the rest of the NHS and care sector and the general public with contempt .
From now on all decisions made will be purely political and economical .
38,000 deaths and counting ...
And at the end of it all , they will still collect their gongs ...
All typical government spin... same bollocks as all the PPE & testing fiasco.
They just make up those numbers, as they go along. Looks good in the Daily Hate Mail...
Never trust any 'five year plan', the former Soviet Union and there vassal states went tits up despite, or maybe because of their 'five year plans'.
Just you wait & see.
Meanwhile, I'll be retiring early...
Usual bull shit par excellence ...
Knee jerk reaction, as most things coming out of Whitehall at present .
We’ve had named physicians for each nursing and residential home for years. Will see everybody each month routinely , as well as those more urgent.
Though this is helpful , doesn’t get them PPE or anybody tested.
Just today had care home worker asking us for testing, as their employer couldn’t get any testing arranged , shambles .
As for weekly care home contact / visit , virtual or otherwise , this will squander clinicians time whilst funding cut, as no longer able to charge retainer. A very workable system, that has worked for years, is being terminated . Not to mention our weekly paramedic visits pre Covid19, I guess they will also have to go and we have to now find our paramedics something else to do, or make them redundant, whilst we are flogging ourself a for reduced funding , also reducing GP availability elsewhere. Seeing folk weekly, who don’t feed seeing just for the heck of it. Bonkers !
...General Practice , not General Classes ....
When will the political classes stop meddling with General Classes. Cut us some slack.
Let’s stand up and let common sense prevail and for once let us be united in the fight against this lunacy .
No change there then...
All that recent hype in Westminster and Fleet Street about looking after GPs...
Now same old bullshit.
It'll never change...
I see the point about video consultations every 28 days during pandemic to satisfy death administration / certification.
Now get off our backs and let us get on with care home visits which work best in our locality. Remember, these have been done for many years, have evolved over time and we don’t need any twat telling us our job. It works just fine. BACK OFF!
At least, finally, Whitehall has finally acknowledged, that Covid19 started clearing out care homes. But only because all of the negative press.
This government just reacts on bad press, just like with the PPE debacle and lack of testing ( if anybody takes those test results serious... ).
agree, no PPE, no see.
should be triage in any case, rather than F2F.
Thin end of the wedge: first one in every 500 appointments & Covid19 only and only up to 30th June my arse.
More like ever increasing numbers, then non Covid19 and open ended carry on in July.
They are having a giraffe.
They are just using Covid19 to make us take on 111 by stealth. This always happens, when a new service fails, it deflects back to us by default.
Never mind, counting the days... will be gone as of 1st July and before they will ask me to come back out of retirement, the answer is NO !
corporate manslaughter comes to mind...
would BMA cover legal costs to press charges ?
Joe Bloggs does seem to have the idea, signing a DNAR form gives us powers to 'bump them off', or that they carry on 'as normal' after resus, as one patient said to me recently. It's still a big taboo and folk are in denial.
Usual government Cock-up.
Never admit any responsibility, blame somebody else, make up whatever statistics suits, if necessary .
Usual bullshit and keep straight face in front of TV cameras. I don’t say, it’s easy, but at least be honest. If they needed PPE in Whitehall, they would be awash with the stuff...
Just take a big breath !
This is the time to cut all this crap! Don’t restart all of this after Covid19 , just stop it for good and let everybody get on with their jobs.
Less is more
As for Brexit, a treasure spoke person confirmed on C4 News a couple of weeks ago, that the government will 'stick to it's time table'. So, whatever / whoever will be left after Covid19 will then face hara-kiri due to Brexit finishing all off. Wreckless !
