National Hopeless Service
Vitamin D isnt a drug its food
I'm a carer to my 89 year old dementing mother. Being a carer isn't an illness. It's the total absence of useful function social care. I don't need to be coded as a carer and have boxes ticked I need to have a government that gives a shit
Shit just got shitier.
Ive got a digital service for health ministers....involving two fingers.
The NHS is the biggest employer in the UK and 5th biggest in the world. The vast majority of staff are demoralised and disinterested in their jobs and outcomes to a level that I don't think can ever be recovered now even if billions were to be invested next week. I think we have to face the reality that absolutely nothing will change in the NHS. Either put up with it or start to move into the private sector even if that is as locums to the NHS.
Just got a quote from petplan to insure a rabbit for a year - £13.09 a month + £55 excess per illness/injury with a cap of £2000 per year.
6 is almost 5000
In a perfect world with no GP recruitment issues this isn't unreasonable. But I/we are at full capacity of following stuff up.
‘There may be a small number of additional referrals for spirometry, but this is expected to have a minimal resource impact.’
How about the the chest clinic do this for free..
We have started advising patients of the request. Some weren't even aware of what they had consented to. Printing off the full records and advising the patient to collect it, redact whatever they want and telling them that it is their responsibility to post it securely to the solicitor etc.
Head, brick wall, beat......
Lets all become happy clappy sessional doctors..... Apart from who will own/lease the premises you work from. Who will be your employer. Who will buy the chair that you sit on. Who will organise the cover when you go on leave/sickness etc etc etc. How about advocating partnerships.
NHSE unaware of the fate of 42,000 GPs.
And when they get fed up of it they will eat cake again like most do. You can see the HBA1c trend from space.
But down South Theresa and Matty are giving us billions and billions and billions and billions to solve everything.
Still think I might buy a coat and some midge spray as at least the Scottish ideas seem functional.
Does anyone know what the attendance rate is in those countries with co-payment arrangements? Does 'free' make people 'lazy'?
This isnt new money, its money that we have been starved of over the last ten years. None of these proposals are going to mend the current dire state. Two of our largest local practices are about to fail due to recruitment issues. Its only small practices that seem to be coping.
What relevance and purpose do LMCs have any longer? Who care what they vote for, NHE must just laugh at them. They have little purposeful voice and are achieving nothing for us locally. I am increasingly resentful of the subscription.
0.1% is a trajectory?
Whats 'special' about General Practice; Block contracts and moral blackmail.
