amazing. could not stop laughing
Human rights restored to doctors - Wow.We have some rights. Now if only the other regulatory agencies would treat doctors in a similar way- Innocent until proven guilty.
Doctors do not have any rights in this country.Always guilty until proven innocent. treated as criminals for just trying to do their job in very difficult circumstances. no recourse to any justice when proven innocent, unlike in other countries like the USA. No apology from anyone involved in treating you like a criminal as it was all done in the name of safety so perfectly acceptable. why would anyone be a doctor in the UK?
do read what the outcome of all whistle-blowers, especially doctors, in the NHS has been. It will help you decide what the right thing to do is.
RCGP - representing general practice but filled with people who don't do any clinical work. Totally separated and clueless to the on the ground reality. DecorumEST and and Cobblers said it all.
Truth finder is spot on.
it would be helpful if those writing these articles could confirm how often they "actually" see patients. It would be useful to know if they see any patients at all. Some perspective is very important. If you do one sessions and a visit a month, you would love visits to remain on the contract. If you work full time and are fighting of visits daily, the real story of your jobbing GP is clear. Most who want to do visits see none or hardly any patients it doesn't affect them. Some Context please.
At least there is one well deserved mention of a person who does some REAL GP work. Keep up the good work Nick. You sir, are a legend.
if they do none (or minimal) coal face patient facing services, how can they be a top GP?
Even in their 80s and 90s??
I think there is more to this story. What happened to supporting our colleagues when they are at the wrong end of something that could happen to any of us, rather than being judgmental? GPs need to look after each other and get off their high horse.
Why wait. just cancel your direct debit with the RCPG and save £££. You won't miss them at all.
Why would anyone still pay £500 to be a member of the RCPG? beggars belief...
Become a doctor. Just leave the UK as soon as you qualify to somewhere that appreciates, respects and looks after doctors. Not the GMC. Not the NHS. Not the UK.
During system failures, only the doctors lose their livlihood and get charged with gross negligence man slaughter. Everyone else gets of scot free. The powers that be do not care if you were the only doctor covering the whole of wales, you are totally liable.
never worked in general practice so doesn't really understand.

Have they not suffered enough.......
Thank you. the best laugh I have had all day. currently on duty suffering it...
Pharmacy "I don't want to take responsibility for this (but thanks for paying me per patient). You must see (an overworked) GP today".
Only 2.3m for GPs and 2.1m for pharmacy? Really?
