The funding going to primary and community care tells you all you need to know about meaningful money going to general practice, it won't. However the death of a thousand cuts for partnership will continue. RCGP will be useless at best harmful at worst, BMA will continue to represent the NHS and not Doctors and NHSE will find new and exciting ways for GP partners to absorb increase costs for everyone.
I'd always assumed this was the case anyway. It is thus important to use buzz words like sepsis, stroke, heart attack, respiratory distress etc in describing your patient.
This really doesn't strike me as a new thing, I'd assumed it's what they always did.
Reputation does not really help with the tax bill from HMRC. Frankly sick of this ongoing desire to screw GP for even more.
Sums things up nicely.
Tell them it's because of Brexit and that it'll be the size of a 20p piece after we leave the EU.
Is this a surprise? Those struggling to pass exams are, simplistically, more likely to be having problems attaining required standards. Once they are out of the bubble of training and are less protected the trouble in attaining standards becomes one of performance not exams.
As soon as increasing the global sum was removed from the scope of this review it was a meaningless exercise.
I’m sure his malignant influence will continue to plague our working lives in some odious way.
Technology brings headlines. Perhaps they hope headlines bring cash. Luckily we are enlightened in GP. We know there is no money.
Personally I have always tended to view most sources of information on pregnancy outside of academic tomes as very open for debate about it's quality. For advice for pregnant women (and their partners should they attend also) I direct them to the NHSChoices website. I have no strong feelings about where else people choose to look but have never directed patients to Emma's Diary.
As to worrying what the RCGP endorses I am somewhat more concerned with GPFV than a rarely used or referred to resource hidden under several clicks on the RCGP website. But I guess one can pick ones battles.
I have little doubt that male privilege means I cannot appreciate the annoyance as acutely as others and perhaps this is why I'm left considering the size of fish and their frying.
Maintain MDO as there is clearly no intention to cover the scope of all those who can attack you for doing the job as well as you can.
Is he still chair Scottish BMA Chair. I thought he didn't get voted back to that position.
Is there a point at which it is thought the number of partners remaining makes a partnership model not a viable prospect anymore?
Is this classed as news? Cofimation of the bleedin ovious has confirmed the bleedin obvious.
I'm surprised it's only 40%.
I knew Richard as a consultant in Hereford when I was an anaesthetic middle grade there. He seemed a nice fella. My own depression though a continuing companion is thankfully now well controlled.
I remember too well how the mind ill with the horror of severe depression can see so clearly (but so wrongly) that removing yourself is the best and kindest thing for everyone around you. I was lucky that for me the treatments worked.
I know that general practice was the strongest driving force in worsening my depression, I cannot imagine how horrific a GMC letter would have been at that time.
I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you and your family find the ways to crack on. X
Home visits are a luxury item the government isn't paying for. A luxury item which should have been removed from the menu with all the other austerity cuts.
GPFV was inadequate if fully delivered. I never thought it was deliverable.
All it has achieved is giving the breathing space from having to have any meaningful engagement in making general practice sustainable and in making the RCGP feel important in engaging with the government.
GPs are as expected voting with their feet.
Would the last GP please turn off the lights... and pay all the bills, sort out the redundancy payments, and talk up how wonderful GP is.
Dr Unwin mentioned a "golden time" and in doing so removed his argument from current general practice and placed it into an era that has not existed for a long time. He essentially ended his argument at that point.
