  • GP contract would include MMR vaccinations under PHE proposals

    Gp anon's comment 25 Jan 2019 12:22pm

    Should be law that it’s illegal to have your children unimmunised — there is not a single medical expert out there given any evidence to to state children should not be immunised .

    It's not about being community house officers, it's the disregard to patient safety and increasing of mdu subscription costs which up is frustrating

  • Named GP scheme to be based on existing funding

    Gp anon's comment 09 Jul 2013 3:22pm

    It makes no difference though, pt fallen and dementia - pt needs admission as will fall again and frankly social services is more important for information and you can't get hold of anyone after 5 pm from social services
    . If pts hospital notes very slim or no recent blood tests which would more easily available ,then there generally will be underlying reason that needs investigating, making political points to superficially keep pts happy without thinking is dangerous and will cause more harm. Most signifacant records are held within hospital depts, unless you want to know stuff about recent colds.

  • Emergency admissions target worth 25% of quality premium

    Gp anon's comment 29 Dec 2012 3:42am

    Nonsense, practices have no role in influencing emergency admission, especially when normal delivery and pregnancy make up the bulk of admission.
    And funding of practices has no relations with number of emergency admission either.
