Econsult analysis though suggests 70% need face to face....oh and increases contacts by 8%
Dont contract changes include something about looking at vaccinations? I see therefore the denegration and blame on GPs has started...
What proportion of those not referred had cirrhosis....study has answered wrong question....and what is primary management and has it been commissioned??
So GPs to take on the non-nhs work from non-gp providers because NHSE cant be arsed to commission proper non-GP services??
we have no idea whether crp testing increases chances of return...just in case...as well as the evidence being poor for them....clinically just as easy to judge and say no - but not a strategy that has been tested
Simply should be for GP initiated bloods only. Secondary care sort their own and GPs shouldn't accept transfer of work
My view is this makes it more likely you will regarded as an employee
Too simplistic a model over 65's??? Need look at frailty screen and do appropriate interventions...and have those available in the community
So they are saying it's dangerous? Good enough reason not to do it IMHO
My CCG letting us get on with it...and community trusts being told to work their teams around us
Meanwhile money is thrown at secdondary care....PCNs and GPs if they join the ICPs will be expected to bail out secondary care...
Well if you are close to the 150k NHS limit....what will happen is GPS will simply stop doing nhs work
20% of our workload results form other providers - get them to their bit - esp as they have had all the funding - let patients self refer for certain things and stop needing a GP referral or signature for everything!
I dont want the work and the risk - why dont they get it?!
Perhaps it could come from the spiralling costs in secondary care?
paul cundy - I dint think they could either. An alternative interpretation is this is a poorly run GP surgery because hospitals cant run surgeries and people are therefore just leaving and the CCG is trying to ensure that the income from the practice still goes to the trust
Doesnt matter - we wont be self employed for much longer - and our income will be from core GMS only - rest will end up in Primary Care Networks
ha ha - so this will comr under the essential equipment for GPs so CCGs will need pay for it....I bet NHSE do something for central drugs before they are sent to us
Why involve GPs? - if a problem is found they should just get on and sort it
