The Dr with no name
should have got lawyer help from the beginning to know what she could and couldn't do. Government too bureaucratic and bloated to make individual exceptions
its amazing that cqc only award outstanding if you do unfunded work that is not even in your remit!
Yes, i agree with A GP of 27years - Nursey practiotioners can do a 2 wks conversion course or a few week prescribing course and suddenly see any patient that walks through the door. The same is true for pharamcist who have never been trained clinically in their under and post graduate training! For retired ex-GPs not the case
The question more like is why aren't the CCG or NHS england going after the pharamcy or pharmaceuticals to keep prices reasonable and expect us to monitor these prices indirectly? We take the risk, call the patient back, over-ride secondary care to get 10-30% of a tight budget to spend on our surgeries??? But guess who rolls over and wags their tails to do so? Whole issue around specials before where pharamcies would get these at huge costs to coverbills of other meds then cogs tell us to do the work to cut specials! but have no authoity over the pharmacy as a 'free-market'! no naming and shaming... but or GPs name and shame in dashboards, and waiting times,
So why is it that when the hospital see a patient and initiate it they get paid upwards of £125 and every time they follow up around £100?? Why should GPs do it for free (within the £100 a year) on top of everything else?
