GPs buried under trusts' workload dump



  • Two GPs suspended for 'inappropriately' prescribing opioids online

    DrMightyRed's comment 30 Jul 2019 11:55am

    It would seem an inappropriately and excessively harsh outcome for one of these GPs, to have a seemingly lengthy suspension when he has shown insight and remorse continuously through this case. I echo the sentiments of colleagues above - “there but for the grace of God go we” - and feel this is another example of GMC heavy-handedness, resulting in a very able and respected GP being thrown under a bus.

  • The gratitude journal of Dr Heather Ryan, aged 29 and 3/4

    No longer an RCGP member, this goes in my gratitude journal immediately. Surprised they didn't supply pieces of silver rather than chocolate coins, such is their betrayal, and failure of insight to their members from this absurd gesture. I hope there is a lovely picture of Rome burning for members to colour in, whilst they sip tea catching up with equally worried and bereft colleagues.
