Great now i can move to Bahamas with my laptop !! Thanks Matty !!!
Folks settle down !!! Nice only says - NICE said GPs should not offer the following to patients aged 16 or over with chronic primary pain - defined as pain that persists or recurs for MORE THAN THREE MONTHS.
So if it present for less than three we can give it!!
So according to the UK govt -- 24 hours pubs are fine. and people can buy as much booze and fast food as they want. BUT please dont give them painkillers to your patient make their lives a bit easier. that just great.
Awesome guidelines. The best yet!!
Now will they please explain this to the patients. The Sheer incompetence of idiots in power in UK is simply staggering. NICE !!!
Former partner now locum | Salaried GP21 May 2020 2:03pm
Whatever the reason one may have doing locums in the past, one has to accept the landscape has changed dramatically.
Only the trees that bend can wither the storm, so adapt my friends.
I find it incredible that some locum GPs prefer to seek state benefits rather than taking up a Partnership or salaried posts. Really? Are substantive posts THAT bad?
And how long do you exactly plan to continue your LOCUM OR BUST path? Get real people. Remember you have a choice. But should you continue to choose the harder path then dont go looking for sympathy from people whose ranks you so despise to join.
Cardinal Rule of Medicine -- First do not harm -- TO YOURSELF !!!
Once this is all finished – whenever that is – politicians will need to have a hard look at themselves.
And patients will also need to think what the NHS is for.
--- these 2 groups have memories of goldfish - when it comes to gratitude - 30 yrs experience
In summary, the article says - You Aint seen nothing yet folks, things can always get worse.
Am I supposed to feel elated now?
Who are they kidding?
"NHS England heard ANECDOTAL evidence GPs retired early to avoid the new rules." - GP retiring early for this reason is NOT anecdotal. It is widespread.
Two of our current full time partners including me are cutting sessions down for this reason. Another has taken premature retirement.
DrDeath - this happens all the time. has happened to me. Apparently we as Doctors have to be always aware of our professional conduct as per GMC guidelines. We are supposed to be superhumans at all times.
Pradeep, forget about the Crossbow- IF the doctor had just used swear words - which a patient himself had used against the doctor - the doctor would be in trouble with NHSE/GMC. This is not Hypothetical. It is based on actual facts.
‘Our message is clear - if you cannot make it to your appointment or no longer need a consultation, please let your GP practice know in advance so the appointment can be filled by another patient.’-- or else?!!
let me guess - please book another appointment!
and if you miss that too -- book yet another one!!
council of despair is spot on- The job now is just about survival - you hope you don't make a bad error and hope you can make it to retirement or a career change.
go for it chaps!! may god help you - as turn out the lights suggests - it is only a matter of time
Wonder what Hancock would have to say if we put similar conditions as Babylon for all new patients joining normal GP surgeries?
Butt is clearly talking out of his Butt!!
