National Hopeless Service
Its just fascinating that 20% are into self flagellation.
We are our own worst enemy. In 2012 we were suppose to go on strike over pension changes. Most of the profession wimpered at the thought of this naughty deed and copped out. Well surprise surprise our pensions were further sh@t on because the government therefore knew we were a bunch of collective idiots.
And it needs to treat sick people not fungal toe nails, acne, ingrowing toe nails and the plethora of non threatening rubbish we are forced to see and treat daily.
I agree with the above. Pharmacist are delaying telling us they have given flu jabs so we are wasting valuable time chasing these patients up. We have also been told that one pharmacist allegedly is telling people they can have a 'free' NHS flu jab if they advise him they are a 'carer'. Surprisingly we seem to have far more carers than we knew!
Nonsense. We have absolutely no control over any aspect of the profession. The BMA/GPC has been totally impotent to do anything useful. Although Hunt was a vaguely good health minister he was totally constrained by the treasury. Hancock is totally clueless and totally constrained by the treasury and Boris will simply put our moans in his pocket.
and to what benefit?
Im with Shaba. We need a grown up conversation about what the NHS and healthcare is for.
Hancock on BBC radio 4 this morning: 'most home visits are undertaken by nurses'
Ive got a solution. How about we dont pay the tax in the first place. A brewery in a piss up.
So we pay tax to be refunded out of taxes. So Matt has worked out to have a piss up in a brewery,
It isnt. Its just less shit than hospital medicine.
Just spoken to some junior doctors as to why they think more are choosing GP VT schemes. Its because after FY2 they have realised too late that medicine is life and sole destroying and GP gives them easy access to part-time work with no on-call.
Is this the same demanding they did before Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba was totally shafted by the NHS?
Dear investors, Run....
I do anyway. There is no blue light on my car.
When I was a boy locums had no access to pensions or crown indemnity. Locums were invariable retired GPs who didnt want to fully hang their stethescopes up. Its why in part we chose to be partners. Perhaps we need to review the entire locum model of pay before the whole system collapses.
My son is a junior doctor, he is forced to hold the other end of a very shitty stick. The shortage of beds and doctors to manage those beds has resulted in a system that has evolved to get patients well enough to be discharged not well the same as in outpatients. The whole system is f@cked. I am dreading getting old.
But we have been vaccinating since 1st October.......
WTF - It has become the usual NHS meeting'fest and to me seems to me about dumbing down to the level of the most useless local practice.
Can you tell my worried well'ites this........
