National Hopeless Service
As above. It was becoming obvious that the expectations of PCNs were becoming impossible hence it was one of the reasons we didnt sign up.
Great idea provided eye stuff gets referred to an optician, foot stuff to a chiropodist
, nursing stuff to the district nurses etc etc. I fear GPs will be the default for any non acute dross especially if 111 maintains access to our appointment systems
Brilliant, let get loads of at risk people all together in an enclosed space so they can have a flu jab whilst coronavirus still floating about.
Ticking boxes isn't medicine. Havent the ivory towerites learnt that during Covid general practice survived without their pointless intervention.
GPs do GP stuff. We are under no contractual obligation to employ nurses/phlebotomist. I can understand the need to change how we do things but if the NHS wants more tests in the community they must fund extra community services.
My staff, colleagues and I are at full capacity and struggling
Its a complex beast. I did a gastro referral a few days ago, cant do FCP at present, for someone who probably has colitis. Advised the patient there will be extended wait so she took it upon herself to go to A&E. The whole of the NHS isnt quite open.
I am a tadd busy doing my work (and enmass telephone consultations doesnt reduce work it creates more) and the increasing work of secondary care who want test organised, prescriptions issued etc etc.
I dont have the capacity to do this and therefore wont.
I feel sorry for all those prawns that will be eaten in endless meeting sandwiches. In order to reduce bureaucracy NHSE will create more bureaucracy in order to reduce it.
The first RSV vaccine induced an exaggerated clinical response to wild RSV infection in most of the infants who were RSV naive before vaccination
that should be .....dealt with at birth
Socioeconomic inequality needs to start at birth
Its now the fault of NHS workers for spreading the virus? How about testing all the idiots who have been ignoring social distancing and social isolation since the lockdown ie most of the population.
Most children cant go back to school but the CQC can go fault and policy document hunting???
GPonline says 1m patients in non DES practices.
We found a very easy way of not signing up...We didnt sign up.
I cannot believe anyone signed upto the DES. Lemmings blinkered by pound signs and 'free' staff.
Brilliant. I can mouth abuse at the next video consultation patient who presents with tooth ache and they won't know. Problem is I won't be able to see them through my steamed up glasses
There is a slight stumbling block in all that. Partners own or lease most of the premises. Are NHSE really going to find the money to purchase them all or acquire the leases? Given that coronavirus has put as back to a worse economic state that 2008 I think not. I have seen 30 years of perpetual tinkering...nothing has changed and covid wont change it either
I am a from the 'gene pool of white public school Oxbridge' and I didnt believe in herd immunity. Unfounded prejudiced comments like that aren't really appropriate in the current climate.
There seems to be an acceptance that its OK to die from cancer but absolutely nothing else even amongst professionals. I have regularly found district nurses doing obs' on people clearly on EOL for heart failure etc and people discharge from hospital on statins etc dying of generally frailty of old age.
WTF? All patients (for no obvious purpose) already have a named GP.
