As employers GPs do need do risk assessments...NHSE as a commissioner has no responsibility and it is not up to them to bully people into ticking boxes so the politicians can claim another success
Increased outcomes not increased activity...activity will go down not up
CCGs to commission not GPs to provide for free.
This is wrong - West Mids Cancer network has suggested using FIT to risk assess urgency for investigation and even then not in all circumstances not a blanket change.
Ah yes meeting reasonablke needs can be sending to a/e - if they insist we see and that is a separate hub it cannot be contractual. I think NHSE also need remember that they are not the judge on the contract...that is for judges
In the spirit of this why not have the medical director of the community trust as named - box ticked...
This says this is normal GMS work and we will only fund you extra IF you can show that you NEED extra. Except it is not GMS it is separate and needs paying for whether the existing resources exist or not.
Crisis? Hardly a need for lots of appointments - hospitals also half full and GP has returned to normal....Normal that is taking longer to do....since I manage patients in a manner I determine I will ring patients back WHEN I decide
Coroners over-reaching their authority
Needs be assessed properly for safety, resource usage, prescribing as well as quality of life for GP.
Direct booking to hot hubs here as using extended access provider. Seeing very ill patients waste of time, there is plenty capacity in secondary care to see them and to do urgent elective work
Show me where in my contract...
NHSE are as ever talking bollox and breaking the law.
Pharmacies open 2 til5 at least and we do have a courtier system locally
RCPCH statement at odds with ENT advice
Fine for GPs - and staff?
HMG cock up at its best - BMA not helping. Or perhaps the treasury and DHSC should talk to each other!
Would help if font size had remained...and had it not been dumbed down!
council of despair - if they don't do triage it ain't going to happen now overnight.
