I would not trust any figures on face value from
Nhs pensions.I have not been in the scheme for over two years and have had a grow statement of £175k for 16/17-how can this be possible??
Agree completely with Meg-if they want to see a specialist I refer.Nobody at Nhs England will support you for saying no,so sod the gatekeeper role-they are wide open for me and all totally justified on the basis of patient choice.
Part of the blame for all this must lie with Gp's themselves.Why are the same number providing so many more appointments without any increase in funding?
Do the hospitals do this -NO they get funded for another consultant.Time to start saying no more go to A+E ,for that is where the money has gone!
Who is going to pay for this population based monitoring of CKD?It is certainly not in the £85 global sum we receive-is it going to be a new national enhanced service?
The lack of insight both Nhs England and the RCGP have is truly mind blowing.Why would anybody in a sane state of mind want a career in UK general practice??And to all the trainees reading this -all you are being lined up for is a good flogging for the next 40 years-please get out whilst you can.
I agree completely with DT,£100 does not go far after all the expenses (Don't forget indemnity)have been extracted.
